Everything grows

This came together fairly quickly tonight.  I needed to make a card for my Stamp Nation pen-pal.  The theme was Warm Thoughts and the picture inspiration was some cacti.  I have 1 cactus themed stamp set with dies from Close To My Heart.  Then I remembered the colors for today's Color My Heart Color Dare may work for what I wanted to create - Bashful, Heather, Fern with an option of Gold.

I used all three colors of cardstock and added gold sequins.  I love that CTMH cardstock now comes with the other side being a lighter color, that's why my pots and the circle and sentiment strip are a slightly different color.  I only have the new paper in Bashful (the Color of the Year) and Basics color group,  I will have to go through my stash of the old CTMH cardstock first.

I used Fern, Heather and black inks.  I also added Gold Shimmer brush to the cacti, but you can't tell in the picture.  Thanks for looking!

  1. Love those little cacti! Shimmer pen can be so hard to capture in a photo - I'm sure it looks great in person.

  2. Love your card. The way you used the colors works really well for your design. Thanks for sharing at Color My Heart.
