Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 28 - Use Orange somewhere on your project

Good morning!  Welcome to another Totally Ladybug Tuesday/Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge!!

It's the lovely Mary's turn to pick the challenge this week, and she would like to see

Orange somewhere on your project

Hmmm - I'm not mad keen on orange, but that's why it's a challenge huh?

Anyway, I dug out my papers ended up with two cards.  For someone not that into orange I appear to have used quite a bit!!    Sunglasses at the ready then!!

The first card uses Amber from the BFF collection, Bo Bunny papers and some of the new Orange Twill Stripe (which you can get here)

I used some stickles to give Amber a bit of Bling!!

And used some of the stamps that are included in the set on the inside along with a Happy Birthday greeting from the Sentimental Numbers set

I then decided to make a notelet - I've got it in my head to make a few sets up and be able to give them as gifts at Christmas.  Yes I know it seems a long way off, but if I start now I might be able to get at least one set completed!!  Anyway, I decided to keep to the same design as the other day (a Sweet Sunday Sketch, here) and use some of the scraps from my main card, some other bits and bobs that were on my desk and some small bits of chocolate cs

I used Football Jack - I just adore his cheeks!!  The sentiment is from the It's Only Words 1 set - these are such a handy set, perfect for every occasion and stamp beautifully :-)

Hope you have time to join in our challenge this week :-)

If I could enter these challenges, it'd make me all happy!!
Amber (girl card)
Jack (boy card)

Hi Sue... Beautiful cards, especially the Jack one. On the BFF card, I would have prefered exactly the same layout and colors without the kraft circle which looks a bit blank, but maybe it's just the picture and the embossing makes it look great in real life...

These are full of gorgossity Sue!! Two cards with orange - I'm so impressed! Love all of your personal touches!

Amanda R said...

Lovin both cards Sue! I like how you used the pompoms to decorate the inside of the first card and the little flourishes around Jack on the second. Such nice finishing touches!

Anita said...

Wow, Sue, you've been really busy! Both cards are fabulous. I think you did a fantastic job for someone who's not crazy about orange.
