SC166 You make the world special!!!


We are having a beautiful day here in the South and I know Spring is right around the corner....the birdies are singing and I just love the bright days....

Please don't hate me if you live up North....come and visit me - we'll stamp together!!!

Okay - so since I'm in a very happy mood - I thought it should reflect in my card. Plus I'm still attached to this color combo - Only Orange, Orchid Opulence and Green Galore!!!

Aren't they beautiful - very springy!!!

I used todays Sketch Challenge #166 as my layout and here is what I have done. I used Only Orange for my base and layered it with Green Galore and Orchid Opulence.

My main image is from the "Women of Life" Set from Papertrey Ink - love it!!! The stems were inked in Green Galore and the flowers were randomly inked with Only Orange and Orchid Opulence. The larger middle flower was raised and I have place a button from the "Bold Bright" family in the center.

The image was layered onto Only Orange with Stampin Dimensionals and before I placed it I added a Ribbon from "American Crafts".

For the sentiment I used the "You Make Me Happy" Set which was featured in last years Spring Brochure. I did not use the whole sentiment....I punched half of it out since it was a little to long.
(Hope that makes sense!?!) To finish it all off I added some Rhinestones from SU.

Also I'm happy to announce that I'll be giving away some more BLOG CANDY!!! I saw that I'm over 20'000 hits and it's time to celebrate again!!!

Please check back....I have to see what goodies I could give away!!! ~TFL!!!~

I love your cards. They make me want to sneak out from work early and go make some. They are bright and cheerful. I check your blog out 4-5 times a day.
Thanks for the inspirations.

Lovely card, Silke. You are so brave to use Orchid voluntarily! LOL
It's pretty here too, but still quite cold in the mornings.
