A Colorful Birthday

For Color Dare #88 on the Color My Heart blog, the combo is Sunset, Smoothie, Lagoon, Sweet Leaf, and Buttercup.  Combining five colors into a project is certainly a challenge, so it was a perfect time to also take the Cricut Challenge on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog.  The umbrella shape available on the Artbooking Cricut cartridge was cut using Whisper cardstock, and then also cut using each of the five Color Dare colors and assembled to form a colorful piece.  In order to use the shape in an unusual way, it was placed on its side on top of a piece of White Daisy which was embossed using the Dots embossing folder.  A birthday sentiment from the Holiday Tags stamp set completes the colorful card.   The "sideways" umbrella actually reminds me of a butterfly wing.
