Outside My Box – Color Dare #204

Have you had a chance to participate in one of the Color My Heart Color Dare challenges?  Even if you don’t link up I hope you’ll at least give our color combo’s a try.  Color Dare #204 took me completely outside my box and I’m so excited to say – I LIKED IT!

When I pulled my colors (cardstock and inks) I was pretty sure this was going to be the challenge I pulled my hair out over.  What on earth was I going to create?!  I thumbed through the originals book and found a pattern that I liked – it had a great big leaf and a smaller one and an idea was born.


My card starts with a base of Sweet Leaf and then the middle panel is a scrap from Sangria it is made up of tone on tone boxes so I felt it matched the little squares of Eggplant that I would add.  I took a piece of Flaxen cardstock and embossed it with the Chevron Embossing Folder for some texture.  The Pretty Petals stamp set was inked in Eggplant and Flaxen and and was cut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge both will be retiring at the end of July so make sure you get yours ordered today.  If you don’t have a consultant I’d be happy to help you here.

I hope you’ll hop over to the Color My Heart Color Dare page to see what the other DT members have done and link up your own project.  All the instructions to link up are right there on our home page.

Thanks for stopping by…see you next week!

  1. Love the layout of your card and I love these flowers…very pretty. I loved working with these colors. I was at a crop this weekend and took this stamp set with me; but when I saw all her new purchases from a trip back to her hometown, I went with some of her dies.
