Color Dare #180 - Reds + Black & White Daisy

Welcome to Color Dare Challenges from Color My Heart.  Each Friday the design team announces a color palette for you to use to create your project.  You can create any type of project you'd like, as long as you use the chosen colors.  If you don't have the actual Close To My Heart colors, just use a similar substitute.

This week's challenge is extra special because we are partnering with another fabulous Close to My Heart challenge blog, Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  We will reward some lucky participants for entering both of these challenges by the Color Dare deadline of Thursday, February 18 at 9PM CST.

  • The Color Dare challenge is to combine Black, White Daisy and any 1, 2 or 3 of the following reds: Pomegranate, Ruby and Cranberry.
  • The Heart 2 Heart challenge is “Share the Love” which you can interpret to mean something with hearts and love messages or something with the February Constant Campaign “Share the Love” stamp set or something else that reminds you of a “Share the Love” theme.
