Color Dare #260 I'm So Happy For You Card

It's time for another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge! This week's colors are White Daisy, Charcoal, Raspberry, Bashful,and Willow.

My studio time is still very limited, but I managed to sneak some time in to create a card using the National Stamping Month From The Heart Stamp Set. A couple days ago, my two of my aunts and I went shopping for a baby gift for my niece (she's having a girl). My card was inspired by all of the cute ruffled bottoms we saw while shopping.

I stamped the image using VersaMark and Charcoal inks, and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The flowers and leaves are "water colored" using Raspberry, Bashful, and Willow inks by squeezing a small amount of the ink onto the lid of the stamp pad and spritzing with water. When I spritzed the Raspberry ink, I accidentally got overspray onto my stamped image. It turned out to be a happy mistake!

I pulled out my thin cuts to cut several scallop border pieces from two-sided Bashful Cardstock and layered them to create the ruffled bottom of the card. I altered each layer with the dark front and the lighter back, accented the light scallops with the clear shimmer brush, and topped it off with a glittery bow.

I kept the inside simple.

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. We decided to change our color challenges from one wee to TWO WEEKS! This change gives you more time and flexibility to create, share and invite your crafty friends to join us too. You have until 10pm EST Thursday, September 21st to enter! I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!
