Color Dare #359 ~ Love of Color

Happy Friday!  This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #359 it is our Love of Color.  This week our colors are  GOLDRUSH, NEW ENGLAND IVY, SAGE, SMOOTHIE, PEACH, and LINEN.  Simply choose at least 3 of the Colors – Black and White are neutrals are free.

I though of fall when I saw these colors so that is the direction I went in.

For this card I cut one of the Layered Leaves Thin Cuts and cut out the Maple leaf from Linen cardstock. I stamped the sentiment which is from the Random Acts of Cardness Stamp Set. I then used the new Stitched Circles Embossing folder on the base. The detailed Maple Leaf is cut in New England Ivy. I then backed the space behind the maple leaf with Smoothie cardstock that I created a tone on tone plaid with the Build a Plaid Stamp Set.

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 #359  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, September 19th, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
