Color Dare 208 - Thanks

For this week's Color Dare challenge, I used a mix of old and new Close To My Heart products to create this card that will be one of the options at an upcoming Card Buffet workshop I'm holding to celebrate National Stamping month that's coming up in September.  I started by embossing a card front with the Quatrefoil embossing folder and used seam binding ribbon for added texture.  Next I cut out the title pieces using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge design found on page 65 in both White Daisy and Lagoon paper and stamped the title in Lagoon ink. Next up was to cut the flower vase from Juniper paper using the design on page 54 of the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and I stamped the vase in Juniper ink with a distresssed background stamp and Juniper pigment ink then applied clear embossing powder and heat set it for some shine.

I stamped flowers in Thistle and Pixie ink using stamps from "Have a Happy Day" and "Beloved Bouquet" stamp sets on scrap White Daisy paper then fussy cut them out.  I mounted everything on the card front then used the new shimmer pen to add sparkle to the flowers.
