Because of you...

Don't fall off your seat - another card from me this week!  That's EVERY day this week so far!  Today's card uses a cute Claudia & Company sweetie - those pigtails remind me of me (when I was a little girl of course!).  I was so pleased to see this month's Claudia & Company challenge to use orange, ribbon and a button - and you know how much I love my bright colours!  So here she is...



Wooo, get those sunglasses on, lol!!  I also created loads of depth on this card by putting the matting, the label die, the images AND the sentiment on foam pads - it literally POPS off the page!  Back tomorrow with another card!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg paper pack
Stamps: Claudia & Company Puddle Jumpers Daisy
Mediums: Copic Sketch markers, white gel pen
Accents: American Crafts ribbons and rub on sentiments, BasicGrey buttons, Bazzill floss
Tools: Nestabilities label dies, corner chomper

Lovely card as usual Mary! I never use orange and it looks so great when you do it. Isn't it strange how we just stick to colours that we like! Take care. Pami x

This is just adorable Mary!! What a gorgeous bright orange and I love the yummy ribbon, the buttons too! Sorry I have been MIA lately, spent most of last week with my DD preparing for her to go to Scrapfest etc. Whew, I'm pooped!! No, I can't believe that Lulu is a year old already! Where does the time go? It MUST be time for a new family portrait!!
