Just Dandy!

This week's Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge features the Close to My Heart exclusive colors Cocoa, Smoothie, Lemon, Sea Glass, Cashmere and White Daisy.  It seems like such a long time since I have seen Cocoa featured anywhere so I decided to give it some attention as the background. (the Cocoa looks black in the picture, but it is a dark brown...really!) The stamping was done with Sea Glass and the Dandy and Little Leaves stamps.  Each of these are M size stamps and are only a "dandy" $2.95!  They are perfect for background stamping and also can be trimmed out as I did for the leaves behind the hearts.  The hearts were cut from Smoothie with the smallest of the Hearts Thin Cuts. Matting was done with Cashmere.  That left me with Lemon...look closely...I used a yellow sequin from the Prickly Pear Sequin Set and topped it off with a Bitty Sparkle.

All the products used on this card are from the 2016-2017 Annual Expressions catalog, except for the sequins which are in the Seasonal Expressions 2.

  1. You pulled off the addition of one color (lemon) in your project like I did with Smoothie... by adding just a tiny embellishment. It works - it is in there and that is all that matters. Love the created background with the M-size stamps. Thanks for joining us again and sharing your talent at Color Dare.

  2. Love how you brought in some of your colors, the little pop of yellow was clever, but you got them all in. Clean and simple and very pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.
