Orange You Sweet!!!

You may need to wear your sunglasses for this post...the colors for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast today are Only Orange, Brilliant Blue, and Purely Ponegranate or Rose Red...yikes!!! It took me a while to figure out what to make...I finally decided since one of the colors was orange, I might as well work with oranges...makes since, doesn't it!!!

The fruit, bowl, and sentiment are images from Clear Dollar Stamps Fruity Fun set. They were stamped with craft inks and embossed with clear ep. The gingham paper came from Hobby Lobby (mine is only about 5 blocks away...whoohoo!!) and the button with ribbon finishes it off.

The close up shows all the dimension...the fruit and bowl were all cutout and attached with dimensionals. The strip at the top is the leftover piece from the dp after punching put the scallops...I couldn't just throw it away!!!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Fruity Fun
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Only Orange, White, The Paper Studio dp
Ink: Only Orange Craft, Brilliant Blue Craft, Rose Red Craft
Accessories: Flower, Button, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Nestabilities, SU Scallop Border Punch

Now I'm off to make some challenge cards...I get to stamp all day...Woot!!! Thanks for dropping by...have a great day!!!
