It's Orange!

Good morning dear friends and fellow bloggers. Yes, I finally did it! I've actually used orange!

My Card

Today I have used a shaped card and the Bugs and Blooms set from Clear Dollar Stamps - that includes the two digi papers, the image and the sentiment. I used the same size die from SB Labels 18 to diecut the digi image and the orange mat and then cut round the embossing line on the image to make a tight mat. I sometimes feel that the next size is too big. The flowers are Cheery Lynn Medium and Miniature Roses and the leaves are from a Woodware punch. The orange ribbon was a freebie from a magazine years ago and the gems are from my stash. Well, I really never thought I would be using orange because it's just not me - so I hope you are proud of me Sue P if you are reading this! LOL!

Hope you all have a good day.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  23. Learn few fine points of software editing with numerous tutorials that are simply accessible with few simple clicks.
    But my favorite is the link that tells you about bad dates stories, of course they are
    the funniest. Music: My - Space is indeed the friend of
    music, but it has close ties with the independent
    artists, who make up for what they lack in record contracts and money by being
    My - Space-strong, building a strong fan base and creating
    loyal street teams, which then take on a lot of the advertising on the band's behalf.

    My blog ... funny pictures and cartoons and jokes

  24. Great card Christine in our 'national colour': orange. I think, it's a rather difficult colour for cardmaking, but you did a great job!
