The Color Dare challenge #185 from Color My Heart Color Dare is to create something with the Close to My Heart colors, White Daisy, Sweet Leaf, Topiary, Cotton Candy and Glacier. I was a bit stumped at first.  I really haven’t used Topiary much, so this was a great challenge for me. I just love the Kudos stamp set which came with the Aritiste Cricut collection.  I did add another layer to it. I used the circle with the dots around it from the Close to My Heart stamp set This Way. I really wanted all the colors of the challenge to be in the main focal piece.  I also added the streamers, which was the balloon string from the stamp set Birthday, which is also one of the stamps sets from the Artiste Cricut collection. One of my favorite Happy Birthday stamps is the one I used on this card.  It is from the stamp set, Thoughtful Seasons. I also added a little shimmer with the Aqua (because it looks like Glacier on steroids to me) and White Shimmer trim along with a bit of shimmer to the confetti dots with my Wink of Stella pen.  Always good to have another birthday card in my stock.

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