OWH Blog Hop with Color Dare Reprise

I saw the cutest dress on the cutest little girl last Sunday!  As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the inspiration for my OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop card. Partly because it was so cute, and partly because it was a wonderful reprise of a Color My Heart dare.  This year, a few of my CMH Design Team friends decided to join in the hop.  We used OWH Sketches yesterday as part of our normal Friday challenge (see this post), and then did a second card today.  My card is based off the following:

OWH Sketch 127
Color Dare 26:


Supplies used are all CTMH.  Stamps: Love Doily, For Every Occasion (sentiment, retired). Paper: For Always. Ink: Honey.

I hope you will pop on over to the Color My Heart blog to see the wonderful cards my DT buddies created as you're hopping along.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,
Becca
