Dear Friend – Color 275

What a fun weekend of creating I just completed.  I spent two nights and two days crafting with 44 other talented ladies at the Dumas Bay Retreat Centre in Federal Way, WA.  The views were breathtaking, the food amazing and the time to concentrate on some projects while spending time with friends was lots of fun.

Even though I’m not on the Design Team for the Color My Heart Color Dare – I still want to participate as I can make time.  This weeks c


olors are Fern, Heather and Bashful with an option to add Gold.

I picked a new pattern from the Make It From Your Heart 4 – card making pattern book and combined it with stamps from the Chelsea Gardens cardmaking stamp set & die cuts.  You really need to see this card in person to appreciate it’s sparkle.

I used Heather B&T paper from the Basics Collection and layered Fern cardstock & Bashful Glitter paper for my banners.

I stamped the leaf stamp directly on the card base in Fern and the sentiment in Heather.  I stamped and die cut the butterfly image from Bashful cardstock and then gave it’s wings a touch of sparkle with the Bashful Shimmer Pen.  I then finished off the card with a few Gold Glitter Gems.

Make it a beautiful day!




My card was a first runner up over at the Color My Heart Color Dare.
