Yay Orange Buddy!



Whoo-hooooo, Joan Ervin is today's Featured Stamper on SCS! CONGRATULATIONS, my *orange buddy*!!

(When Joan and I were dirty girls, we worked together on making all orange cards for the September Fan Club theme....so I call her my orange buddy and she calls me the same, hee!)

So anyway, when I saw that she was today's featured stamper, of course I had to make an ORANGE card for her! I chose to CASE this card of Joan's. I kept the flower and butterfly theme and the same layout. I just used different colors, papers, stamps, and made it a 5" square card.

The bella blossom is three layers and it's stamped on Crystal Metallic paper from the Paper Temptress. The petals are layered together with Dimensionals. The butterflies are also on Dimensionals. The pearls were colored with an E27 Copic marker.

Here's a close-up of the shimmery paper:



Here's the inside of the card. The embossed butterfly is also on Dimensionals.

I'm sorry you and your DH missed the end of the race last night, but if you catch trackside tonight at 8 (on speedtv) and you'll see the end replayed a few times. Smoke passed #17 with 2 laps to go for the win - VERY exciting stuff!
