Play Date Cafe # 65

It`s friday which is normally cause for celebration but this week it just means that it`s getting nearer and nearer to the end of my unexpected break from work. Can anyone tell that I`d much rather be home than at work? Lol.

Here is the inspiration for this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe

Ofcourse at the first glance of orange I knew I had to take part. I managed to curb my enthusiasm a little bit and not go over the top with the colours.
Here is my card,
As you can see I gone for orange as my main colour.
The spotty DP is Pink Petticoat Dots in smoke.
I`ve scored the bottom of the card to give it some texture.
Some bright orange ribbon and a bow for that feminine touch.
The image is Papertrey Turning a new leaf stamp set stamped in Versa Color Fresh Green and cut out with a nestie circle and mounted onto a Lacey Circle in orange and raised on foam pads.
I`ve added 1 orange punched butterfly onto the leaves and another in the left corner.
The sentment is Flourishes Tag Lines stamped in versa color Orange.

Well thats it from me for today, I really should be getting on with the rest of the wedding invitations.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  7. Hi Lynn,
    I really like what you've done with this card, and the bright colours contrasted by the white.

    Also, well done with the invites; looks like you had the same colours to work with as me :) Batches of 10 really help with the will to live, don't they?! Takes your mind off the crazy number you actually have to do, for just a little while!

    And thanks for the lovely comments on my site, they always make me :)

  8. Absolutely love this - orange is one of my favourite colours too! Love the way you teamed it with that stunning grey polka dot paper and the embossed lines are great too.
