Color My Heart Challenge Blog - Post #223




This week at Color My Heart Challenge Blog our Color Dare #223 is using Close To My Heart Colours: Sea Glass, Bamboo, Cocoa, Colonial White, Dessert Sand, Fern, Juniper, Slate, Whisper & White Daisy. All of these colours can be found in CTMH's Oh Deer! Paper Packet.

I used Close To My Heart's Oh Deer! Paper Packet with CTMH's Kraft & Sea Glass cardstocks. I substituted the Desert Sand colour with Kraft to match the Oh Deer! Complements better.
