Color Dare #201

Today I took all day to work on a card for Color My Heart Color Dare #201.  Some days, artwork ideas will come to in a snap, but then there are days, like today, that I would play around with pieces over and over trying to make a card that started out one way but ended up completely different from what I pictured in my mind.  This month the paper of the month is the Magical Workshop Your Way.  So here is my project - a standard size card with a top fold:
 
 
 
Here is a close up of the dimension--the red oval has dimensional tape, the whole flower bunch has dimensional tape and so does a few flowers and part of the banner ribbon.
 
 
And this last one is just a picture that shows the front of the card better.
 
 
Papers:  Magical Workshop Your Way, Cranberry, Crystal Blue and White Daisy Cardstocks;
StampsC1647 A Bunch of Love; Z3251 A Bunch of Love Thin Cuts; D1560 Holiday Tags

Your card is BEAUTIFUL! I would have never paired this stamp set with this paper packet...big mistake for me not thinking out of the box. Thank you so much for joining us at the Color My Heart Color Dare!

Well, your many attempts of putting together your card paid off and you ended up with a very beautiful card...so often the same thing happens to be. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare and please return for another color challenge on Friday.
