Color My Heart Color Dare #542

 Hello!  Thanks for stopping by.  Color My Heart Color Dare #542 challenge is posted.  This week is a Lucky 7 challenge, pick at least 3 colors to use on your project.

My card features old stamps from Simon Says Stamp and dies from Spellbinders.  I'm so proud of me using some other things in my stash.  I chose Candy Apple, Honey Butter and Shortbread.

I stamped the stripes using Schoolhouse red (MFT), Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed Distress inks.  I die cut the butterfly and using those same inks I colored the butterfly using blenders from i-Crafter.  I have to admit, I did take advantage of an amazing sale at Altenew for their blending brushes and free shipping but these blenders are so pretty and so soft,  I don't want to get them dirty!  LOL  So I'll use these i-Crafter ones until I've completely worn them out. 

Anyway, back to the card.  I die cut an stitched oval panel from Phone Booth (Spellbinders) card stock and embossed it with a diamond pattern embossing folder from JoAnn's.  Adhered the butterfly and used black card stock for the outline of the butterfly and that black piece really makes the rest of the colors pop.

I do hope you join us!
