Color Dare #277

My first Color My Heart Color Dare entry!  In this tic-tac-toe challenge I have actually used two lines; the top row of Juniper, Heather, and Sweet Leaf, and the right column of Sweat Leaf, Charcoal, and Mink.

For this entry I created a 3x3 thank you card.  The stamp of "Thanks" was cut from the rest of the sentiment in Happy Heart.  The back paper cut at 2 7/8 squared is in Sweet Leaf and the Mink Leaf pattern from the Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack at 2 3/4 squared.  The diagonal floral pattern is also from this pack.  The white shimmer trim has been split in half for a thinner line.  The bow is the thin cut is a portion of the Ribbon Border Thin Cut in Juniper.  The heart is from a retired glacier embellishment pack.  The dot on the middle of the bow is from Chelsea Gardens Dots & Gems set.  The others are the regular Clear Sparkles and Itty Sparkles.  

Happy Crafting,
Alex Bumb
