The Color Dare challenge #224 from Color My Heart Color Dare is to create something with the Close to My Heart colors Cranberry, Crystal Blue, Willow and White Daisy. I immediately thought of the City Sidewalks paper packet since these are the colors in that paper packet.  Since Christmas is now over, I decided to use the colors for a Birthday Card.  I random stamped the three colors (Cranberry, Crystal Blue and Willow) with a small dot stamp and then cut the balloons using a Cricut Cut.  I thought it would be fun to have them coming out of an envelope so I used another Cricut cut for that as well.  I punched some small dots from the papers I used and glued them on various embossed dots for some additional color and interest.  Hope you like it.

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