Color My Heart Challenge Blog - Color Dare #124

I used Close to My Heart's Kraft, White Daisy & Glacier cardstocks.

To embellish the 6 x 6 layouts, I used CTMH's Edge Distresser, CTMH's Artbooking Cricut Cartridge (snowflakes & 5 inch calendar), CTMH's Spray Pens - one with water to dampen my glacier cardstock to crumple into a ball and then iron out to give the old look - another spray pen filled with water and CTMH's Desert Sand re-inker to spray the glacier cardstock, January title and snowflakes to give that old look as well, CTMH Gold Sequins, My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Die, straight stitch on my sewing machine, Zig Chocolate marker for journaling and Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cartridge for the January Title.

I used CTMH's January Stamp of the Month - This Moment & Flakey Friends (snowflakes on white daisy cardstock) stamp sets with CTMH Desert Sand ink. 

You may use any products to participate in the Color My Heart Challenges, but we encourage you to use CTMH products. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, January 8, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.
