Grateful for Your Kindness

It's time to play along at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #493. There are three required colors as seen on the color board below. Black, white and neutral colors are also permitted. You may use any brand of products but the colors should match closely.

I selected pink and orange cardstock and yellow dotted paper. First I cut the papers into strips of varying widths. Using score tape, I adhered the strips onto a small square of acetate, leaving a small space between the edges of each strip. Next, with a die, I cut a circle from the acetate. The butterfly was die-cut from black cardstock and adhered to the circle. I offset the circle, adhering with foam tape. I trimmed off the excess from the circle. To finish I added some black gems.

I hope you'll join us at the Color Dare Challenge Blog. A new biweekly challenge begins every Friday morning so there is always a challenge to try. This challenge runs through Thursday, May 5, 2022.
