Color Dare Create Card

Hello, my friends! As you know, I truly enjoy the weekly challenges from the Color My Heart Dare blog and this week we were challenged to a Tic-Tac-Toe where we were to choose three colors in a row/diagonal from this color palette.




I chose to use Peacock, Eggplant, and Saffron for my card since this choice of colors felt like it would go together really well and had a nice warm autumn feel. At first, designing the card was quite the challenge.  I knew my color palette and I knew that I wanted to use the Dreams stamp set, but I was baffled at how to put it all together.  I am not sure if I was suffering from lack of sleep or too little coffee, which is why I am so grateful that Close to My Heart has created some amazing idea books that we can look through and be inspired by.




I so surprised how cute this card turned out!  I love all the textures from the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts and how that white argyle stamp just pops on the Eggplant cardstock. I even added a little Gold Shimmer behind the sentiment just for a little ✨bling✨.


I would love for you to join in this week’s Color My Heart dare challenge.  You don’t even have to have a blog to join, just simply upload your photo onto their Facebook page and they will add you to the challenge.  They are fun to join and really help push your creative brain to new challenges. I can’t wait to see what you create!
