Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #249 we are challenging you to combine  White Daisy, Whisper, Sapphire, Lagoon, Glacier & Cashmere.I saw these colors and thought of the beach and sea shells.  So I though of the Swirly Seashell stamp set and thin cuts.
