A couple weeks ago I entered into my first Color Dare Challenge and I was fortunate enough to be chosen as the winner! Imagine my excitement for being chosen, but not only that….I was asked to be a guest designer for a future challenge!! I could barely contain my excitement!
Well…this is the week and the challenge is to use the colors Buttercup and Sunset.
Here is what I came up with using those two colors, and the neutral colors of Slate and Chocolate.
Starting with a Colonial White Cardstock base I added a layer of Slate Cardstock, then another layer of Colonial White Cardstock, and finally a layer of Chocolate Cardstock. The focal point of my card are the two feathers cut using the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge in BUTTERCUP CARDSTOCK and SUNSET CARDSTOCK. Using a Bone Folder I created a seam down the center of the feathers to give the feathers dimension.
The sentiment is from the Perfect Fit-Thanksgiving Stamp Set and is stamped using SUNSET EXCLUSIVE INK®. The banner is also cut using the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge, and scored with a bone folder to give the added dimension. I also added a four Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems to the card. The border on the Slate Cardstock is also stamped using the Perfect Fit-Thanksgiving Stamp Set in Slate Exclusive Ink®.
I love the colors that were chosen for this week’s challenge! With the fall colors that this card displays I can’t help but think of Thanksgiving and being grateful for the many, many blessings that I am so undeservingly given each and every day!! I have greatly enjoyed the honor of being chosen to be this week’s guest designer for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge, and I hope you all enjoy the card I’ve made!!
