Bright and Blingy!

Before you scroll down I'll just warn you, This one is BRIGHT and you will need sunglasses to view it. I didn't intend on it being quite this bright and wouldn't usually use Only Orange but it turned out alright considering. Here's what happened...

The other week I was at a stampin' night with a fellow demonstrators, Danielle Pitts and Angela Parker. Was a great night and whilst there I started on this card for the current Inkspirations sketch at the time. I had Orchid Opulence and Melon Mambo scraps I was already working with so though Pumpkin Pie would set it off well. I asked to borrow some Pumpkin Pie CS and saw it come out from the Earth Elements pack but after I completed the circle part of the card I took it home to finish off and found that it was actually Only Orange. So End result = SUNGLASSES!

I actually didn't get this one up in time to be able to be in running for the challenge but thought I'd share it anyway. The great thing about it is it's very different to what I would usually do. With the Only Orange pleated paper strip I didn't have ribbon to match so I thought I'd create my own little feature by scoring the cardstock at 1cm, 3cm, 4 cm, 6 cm, 7cm, 9cm, 10cm, 12cm, etc etc and then folding it and taping to give the card an extra pop! I hope you like it.
