Color Dare #92 - Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue

Welcome to the weekly Color Dare Challenge 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.

Color Dare #92:  Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue

I recently worked on a large canvas piece using these wonderful "Hello Blooms" and the beautiful Skylark paper.  I had so much fun that I decided I would take down the scale of the project to a card-sized layout.  I played around with a variety of different backgrounds and accent strips but decided I liked the Kraft color best.  The deeper neutral color allows the beautiful pastels to shine!
How will this week's color combination inspire you?  Visit Color My Heart for more information about the challenge, get inspired by the design team, and upload your project.  I hope you'll join the Color Dare!


  1. This is so pretty and a little rustic at the same time! I love the way you did this on Kraft CS. The font of the "HELLO" is really fun. I need to check out that stamp!

  2. Gretchen, the layering of these flowers is so beautiful. And you're right, the colors just pop against that Kraft background!

  3. I love flowers and these are especially pretty. I love how the colors pop off the Kraft background. Very pretty!

  4. I love the flower bunch you've created--they look really good on the kraft paper--you make me want that stamp set now!
