Have a Joyous Holiday

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #473 is up on the blog. This biweekly challenge, which runs through Thursday evening, December 16, 2021, is a Tictactoe challenge. You select three colors that are arranged in a row - vertical, horizontal, or diagonal. If you add any colors other than black and white that are not on the board, your card will not be considered for the top-four selection. I chose column #1 - Wisteria, Mulberry & Rosemary, using patterned paper that also included Glacier & Charcoal. Then silver can be found in the snowflake embellishments.

The front of the peach card base was dry embossed with a pattern of snowflakes. Various shapes were die-cut and added to the peach card base, some with thin foam tape. Then two banners were added along with three tiny silver snowflakes embellished with mini rhinestones. The sentiment was computer-generated. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated.
