Calypso meets Color Dare and Addicted to Stamps

Try this on for size...  This card was created for Color My Heart Color Dare #196 as well as Addicted to Stamps and More!

What makes this card special (besides me making it  :) )?  This card was inspired from Make it from Your Heart volume 2 pattern #21 sample.

The background and texture paper is from our Calypso paper packet.  The bottom right (cotton candy striped) is one of the PML "cards" from the packet.  I used this instead of the white triangle outline on black B&T paper because it wouldn't look as colorful.  Each were cut 1" x 1".

Each B&T was backed with 1 1/8" piece of Black cardstock.  Opposite corners were cut with the Corner Rounder.

Oh, the saying Black cardstock was cut at 1 1/8" x 2 3/8".  The White Daisy cardstock was cut at 1" x 2 1/4".  "Birthday wishes" was stamped with Lagoon ink while the stars were stamped in Pear ink.

Honey cardstock (cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8") was layered on top of Black cardstock (cut at 4" x 5 1/4").  The 1" x 1" squares are placed 1/8" apart and from the edge of the Honey cardstock.  Then  everything was raised with Thin 3D Foam.  The saying was additionally raised with Thin 3D Foam.

Finally, the card was finished off with Clear Sparkles.

For Color my Heart Color Dare, the following colors - ALL and ONLY - are to be used

Our Current ChallengeThis site seems like a good place for a challenge (like I'm not challenged enough with time).  I lucked out trying it for the first time with the challenge as anything goes.  What does that mean?  It means I can do anything!  :)

How crazy is this?  Addicted to Stamps and More challenge is also #196!!  How cool!  Okay, okay, I'm easily amused.

I really love your card...some of the things that caught my eye are that you layered your punched pieces - it really grounds them and I like that. I also like that you did a "double" so that your sentiment would fit. Thanks for playing along with the Color Dare this week.
