Color Dare #227--Sugar Rush Colors

Thanks to all the talented crafters who participated in last week's Peacock, Glacier, Black and White Daisy challenge. We are so happy to have you sharing your art in our gallery! 


Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge where we invite you to use the specified Close to My Heart colors to create something that you like.  (Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!) This week we are challenging you to use all and only the featured colors in the Sugar Rush paper packet.  They are:  Canary, Pomegranate, Whisper, White Daisy, Blossom, Raspberry, Sea Glass and Tangerine.  That's a lot of colors!  (Include as many as you can if that is too much of a challenge for you.)
