Color Dare #292 Missing You

It's time for another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge! This week's challenge is to use only Bashful, Canary, and Linen. You may also include White Daisy and Black, but please do not add any other colors.

I stared at the three challenge colors for quite some time trying to decide which direction I wanted to take for my card. My original idea just wasn't working for me, so I went with "plan b." The soft colors in this challenge are perfect for clean and simple cards. I decided to focus on the Bashful and Linen, and use Canary as an accent.

The Rose Embossing Folder adds subtle texture to the Linen panel while allowing the Bashful Glitter butterfly to remain the main focal point. I backed the die cut butterfly with Canary Cardstock, adding a layer of vellum in between to soften the yellow. I tried not to use black on this card, but the challenge colors were too light for the sentiment.

To add a bit of dimension to the butterfly, I adhered the body directly to the card panel and used Thin 3-D Foam Dots under the top portion of the wings. Sparkles accent the body and sentiment.

Inside, the Bashful panel is accented with embossed Linen cardstock and a thin strip of Bashful Glitter Paper.

Ready to play? Just create a project using ALL and ONLY the colors in this week's challenge. If you don't have the exact colors, use the closest colors you have. Our color challenges are open for two weeks, giving you more time and flexibility to create, share, and invite your crafty friends to join us too. You have until 11pm EST Thursday, May 24th to enter! I can't wait to see what you create!

  1. Love your butterfly card! It's so delicate and seems to make the sentiment more powerful.
