Sending Hugs

Join us at Color My Heart Color Dare #467 for a "Color Trio" challenge. This is a biweekly challenge that runs through Thursday evening, November 4, 2021. There are three required colors - Sundance, Papaya, and Sage. Black, white, and silver metallic are free colors. No other colors may be included. As long as your colors are a close match to the color block below, you may use any product.

Desiring a simple card, I masked off a 3/4" margin along the left side and lower edge of a white panel then brushed on yellow ink. I die-cut the flower from Papaya cardstock and adhered it direct to paper. The leaf was a leftover die-cut from my stash. The white panel was added to a green mat and then to a white card base. The sentiment was stamped, matted, and added with foam tape and a few pearls were added. The inside was decorated with a small die-cut flower in Papaya.
