The Color Dare challenge #176 from Color My Heart Color Dare is to create something with Close to My Heart colors, White Daisy, Whisper, Slate and Black. You know those times when you have an idea of what you are going to make but for some reason it worked out much better in your head?  That is what happened to me and I ended up doing something completely different than what I started out to make.  I also challenged myself to leave some white space there in the center of the card.  I usually have a hard time with that. I was quite pleased with how it turned out.

Thank you Color My Heart Color Dare for the fun these challenges provide!


Cardstock: CTMH White Daisy, Black, Whisper and Slate

Stamps: CTMH Have a Happy Day, Card Word Puzzle and the flourishes are from a long time CTMH retired set that unfortunately I do not see a name for, just a product number, E1012.

Stamp Pads: CTMH Whisper and Black

Other: CTMH Black Shimmer Trim and the Black and Grey Epoxy Bubbles assortment


Don’t forget to pin it if you like it!

  1. Your card is very pretty and love the flourises. I have some retired flourishes very similar to these and never think to use them…just pulled them out to use. Love how you added the upper corner flourish too around other embellishments. You filled the white space very elegantly.

  2. Beautiful card, Patty! I love the top corner embellishments and the flowers laid over the flourish. Very classy and elegant! Thanks for joining us at Color My Heart Color Dare again–we really appreciate your sharing your great ideas with us!
