Thinking of You (CD 595)


It's time to create Challenge 595 at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenges. The color board below is a Fancy Five Challenge meaning you have five colors from which to choose. You may use three, four, or five colors from the board. I selected Peach, Flamingo, Glacier, and Sage, including black and gray. This challenge is biweekly and runs through Thursday evening, April 18, 2024.

I used a stamped image - a freebie from Honey Bee Designs, to create my card. After coloring it with Copic alcohol markers, it was fussy cut and adhered to a black and gray patterned paper panel. This was matted asymmetrically with Glacier-colored cardstock and adhered to a card base in a peachy hue. The sentiment banner provided with the image was adhered with thin foam tape and a few pearls were added. The inside was lined with white cardstock and decorated with patterned paper. 

We look forward to seeing your project in our challenge, so visit the Color Dare Blog and play along!

A few days after creating this card, I received word that my 98-year-old Aunt Mildred had fallen and broken her leg so I mailed the card to her with a personal message included. 

Thank you for stopping by.
