Color Dare #195 ~ Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon and White Daisy

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #195 we are challenging you to combine THISTLE, PEAR, CRYSTAL BLUE, LAGOON, and WHITE DAISY.

Color Dare 195_oI was needing to complete my project and I love this color combinations so I figured it would not be too difficult to decide what to create but to it was a bit challenging to narrow down what I wanted to create.  Then I got a phone call from my mom and she was having to put her dog down after 14 years together.  So I then knew I needed to design a sympathy card.

Color Dare 195 ~ Pet Sympathy ~ Calypso ~ Simon Says Stamp ~ PawPrints on our hearts ~ CatScrapbooking.comI realized I forgot to photograph the inside of the card which said Dogs leave pawprints on our heats and I added a few more hearts and pawprints.

For this card I used the following products:

  • Stamp Set ~ Pawprints on Our Hearts by Simon Says Stamp
  • Inks ~ Thistle, Pear, Lagoon and Crystal Blue
  • Cardstock ~ Crystal Blue, Lagoon, Pear, Thistle and White Daisy
  • Paper Pack ~ Calypso
  • Cricut ~ Envelope and Hearts

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #195 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday June 2, 2016 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!

I have to admit I was a bit unsure about this paper pack because of all the pink… I am not a pink girl and I have a boy so not my go to color.  I decided to challenge myself anyway since it does have blues, greens and black.  Well to my surprise I have really begun to fall for this bright and cheerful paper pack.
