Encouragement in Orange


I think the fact that it is summer here influenced my colour choice on this card, that and the dp, from an Amy tangerine pack.

The set is from Sweet n' Sassy, and I love this sentiment, which was stamped on orange paper to match the card base and pick up the colour from the dp.

The image is from the same set, and the panel was sponged with a coordinating ink before being mounted over a doily.

The final touch was the ribbon with a wee bow slid onto it.

I love the vibrancy of this card.
