orange. . . .

is not a color I use very often.  I don't buy orange clothing or decorate my home with it.  But, I do enjoy orange flowers:


Tim's  flower garden stamps are gorgeous.  I used my go to for coloring again, Prismacolor pencils.  The stitched squares are from MFT.  I added a bit of interest behind the flowers by sponging spiced marmalade distress inks through Simon Says Stamp's tiny dot stencil and then added some gold Stickles here and there.  The happy die is from MFT and the birthday sentiment is Hero Arts.

Challenges:

Simon Says Stamp:  birthday.
Seize the Birthday:  anything goes.


Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Pretty card and great colouring. Love the bg stencilled.

Orange is the national colour in The Netherlands. When it's King's Day, you will see orange everywhere. Majority will wear orange!
