It's A Banner Day

I've been wanting to try the card pattern #24 from the new Make It From Your Heart Vol. 5 and when the color challenge from Color My Heart came up that gave me the color inspiration I needed to make this card. I sponged a light background of clouds from my old time CTMH cloud stencil with Lagoon ink. I rounded up some background textured papers for the colors, cut the banners and put it all together.

Use these colors from Color My Heart for your own special project.

It's Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart
Using the Tic Tac Toe board below from Color My Heart I used the bottom row for my card: Glacier, Mink, and Sapphire. I had to go way back to find some BTP papers with Sapphire and Mink. I did use the mink papers in the current mix-in paper pack. I really like the combination of Mink with Sapphire so I just added a touch of Glacier for an accent color. The Mink flower is a White Daisy flower sponged with the Mink ink pad.
