Make A Wish Card ~ Color My Heart Dare #334

I am so glad to see that we are focusing on some fresh spring colors at the Color My Heart Dare Blog, because I have spent the last week on a weather roller coaster. I was full of excitement packing away my sweaters at the beginning of the week with a 65º  glimpse of spring, only to drag them out again during a mid-week blizzard.  HELLO crazy!

During the snowing and blowing, these bright shades of spring called out to me, and, as you can see, I used the full array of colors to create this charming Make a Wish card. (Why using only three when you have a whole palette to play with?)

In all honesty, it was a very simple card to create using our sweet Dandelion Wishes stamp set and So Much Happy paper.  The stamp set lends to so many possibilities with the Dandelion fluffs, miniature flowers, and sentiments.  When I first spied this set in the catalog, I HAD TO have it – though considered a weed by most, dandelion fluffs are one of my favorite “flowers”.

After creating a stitched background of Almond cardstock and Lagoon paper, I heat embossed the sentiment using White Embossing powder. I also add a few of those cute little “fluffs” next “Wish” to make the sentiment stand out a bit.

Each of the Dandelion images was stamped onto a Stitched Square backed with Almond cardstock and placed onto the card using Thin Foam Tape. It is difficult to see, but I brushed a little Gold Shimmer onto each square before stamping the images.

Whether you are experiencing wonky temperatures this week or enjoying the warm sun, I hope that this Make a Wish card inspires you to create something new for the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge.

I can’t wait to see what you create!
