Look On The Bright Side of Life

The Color Dare challenge for this week is sunny and fun. 
Look at these colors:
How can you not get happy with these colors?!
The colors for the Color My Heart Color Dare #138 are:

  • Smoothie
  • Sunset
  • Canary
  • Pear
  • Juniper
  • White Daisy

I got inspired by an easy card from CTMH's Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1  how-to book. I use both vol. 1 and Make It From Your Heart vol. 2 all the time!! Such great ideas.

Here it is:

Using the Whimsy Paper Fundamentals Assortment, I cut 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares from the 5 colors and made diagonal cuts, rounding the non-cut corners, and flipping one side over. The stripped square was made by covering a white square with our new Carnival and Boardwalk Washi tape pack that are 3/8" wide. Look On The Bright Side is a segment of the new Carnival Washi Tape pack cut out and put on white cardstock to make is "pop". The horizontal stripes are the Carnival Washi Tape pack put on a separate piece of cardstock and adhered to the card.

A little bling and there you have it!

Thanks for Looking!!
