Multiple Color Card

One of the entries in the opening gallery is a multiple color note card. The caption said that for the Color My Heart design team project the artist had to create something with the following colors: gold rush, ruby, cotton candy, juniper, twilight, and gypsy. The note color had all six colors displayed in a flower. Gypsy and cotton candy colors appeared in the picture frame. The ruby card stock had the universal background writing stamped with gypsy. The card will make a nice note card for the recipient at the close of the open gallery.
