Happy Monday all! Hope you had a great weekend! Yesterday was so beautiful here — we got a bit of yard clean up done. I wish we could go from snow covered to lush green without the mud in between. Our backyard is always a mess because the tree in our neighbor’s backyard drops “prickly balls” all over the place — I think it is a Sugar Maple. It’s beautiful in the fall, but the little balls drive me nutters!
I’m still finishing up with the cards that I sent off for consignment. This was yet another Bugaboo card. I just love the jars that Jodie has in the store.
I can’t say that I would typically wear the color orange, but something about it on a card is really lovely to me. I colored up my flowers with Copics and used varying shades of orange. I found this really nice piece of gradient orange designer paper from American Crafts and kept the layout very simple. It’s a kraft card base so I added in some lace to compliment that neutral aspect. To finish things off, I added a little orange bow, some Stickles to the centers of the flowers, Glossy Accents to the jar rim & label and a few pearls in the corners.
