Color Dare #195--Thistle, Pear, Lagoon, Crystal Blue and White Daisy

Thanks to all the talented crafters who participated in last week's Shades of Blue challenge.  Selecting winners this past week was quite challenging as there were so many wonderful entries.

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge where we invite you to use the specified Close to My Heart colors to create something that you like.  (Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!)  This week we are challenging you to use all and only these Close to My Heart colors:  Thistle, Pear, Crystal Blue, Lagoon and White Daisy



Here is some inspiration from our awesome Design Team.  If you have a chance please stop by our blogs to see how we made these projects and leave a comment.














Now it's your turn. Take some time this week to create a project using these colors. If you don't have the exact colors, just use the closest ones you have. Next, take a picture of it and upload it to your blog. Make sure you include our link and challenge picture in your post. Then link your post to our site, using the link to your post, not your blog. See our sidebar for complete rules. Most importantly, have fun!  We look forward to visiting your blogs and commenting.
