Color Dare #254- Well Hello Card

Are you ready for another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge? The final challenge for July includes all of the colors from the Prickly Pear paper packet: Blossom, Emerald, Lemon, Poppy, Sapphire, Sea Glass, Sorbet, Tangerine, White Daisy. You can choose 3-4 colors and neutrals, or use the paper packet this week.

My card was inspired by a card by Beck Fleck (the creator of PageMaps). She made paper pompoms using one-inch circles of patterned paper and covered the front of a 5"x7" card with them. I decided to make a smaller, 4.25" square version of her card.

The warm colors in the pompoms (Blossom, Poppy, and Tangerine) really pop against the Sapphire background. I added a grid of Clear Sparkles to catch the light and make the card twinkle.

I usually design cards that I can easily pop in the mail. This card could be mailed by flattening the pompoms, but I like the WOW factor that the dimension creates. I'll probably hand deliver this one!

I used a zip strip and one more Tangerine circle to finish off the inside.

Ready to playJust create a project using ONLY the colors in this week's challenge or the Prickly Pear papers. If you don't have the exact colors, use the closest colors you have. You have until 10pm EST Thursday to enter!

Thanks for stopping by today!
