Hearts and a Flourish - Happy Birthday

You're invited to play along at the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge! This is Challenge #469, a biweekly color challenge that runs through Thursday evening, November 18, 2021. Here is the color board:

You must use at least three of the colors. Colors not on the board may not be used. Black, white, gray, and silver may be added as neutrals. I elected to use four colors - Wisteria, Ballerina, Lemonade & Sage plus neutrals of white, gray & silver. (The silver photographed as black.)

I cut the various shapes using dies and my trimmer and layered them onto a silver panel. The sentiment was stamped and added with foam tape. The card front was added to a white card base and the inside was decorated with coordinating patterned paper.

Please visit our Color Dare #469 Blog for inspiration from the Design Team and to see our guidelines. We hope you'll join our challenge!
