A summer challenge:  Color My Heart Color Dare

I'm excited for some fun challenges this summer.  A fellow CTMH consultant has started a blog daring anyone who will listen to create cards using her color challenges.  Scroll down on the right side of this blog to find the Color My Heart badge to take you to her blog.

I took the first challenge, kind of.  It was monochromatic purple.  I have to admit these weren't even my favorite purples, so I just HAD to break the rules a little and add another color (Buttercup - it's kind of a neutral, right?).  The colors given in the challenge were: (shown from outside to inside on this card) Amethyst, Smokey Plum, and Petal.  I used a clear scallop round card and some CTMH bling along with D1491 Hooray Bouquet stamp set with black ink.  You can't really tell with this (super amateur) picture, but the Amethyst cardstock is on the inside of the card.  The top of the card starts with the Smokey Plum circle.  All cuts were made on the Cricut using CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. Overall, I really like the way it turned out.  Looking back, I could have even used White Daisy or Colonial White for the flower.  But I just couldn't resist the Buttercup!

I would love for my friends and customers to participate in the Color My Heart challenges, if you do, be sure to let me know!

  1. Neat card, Karen! I haven't used the clear cards before, and I like how you did it with the Amethyst on the inside. Your bling is great! And I understand not being able to resist Buttercup. It's definitely in my top 3 or 4 favorite colors. Thanks for playing along!
