Embellish Color Challenge - Polka Dot Paradise


Hello! Hope your Sunday is well and you are getting geared up for another work week! Did you know that Ashley Newell is about to embark on a new online magazine called Embellish? I am really excited to see what all is offered for a mere $3.00 a month! The first color challenge is Polka Dot Paradise Color Challenge. We are to use of course, polka dots and light orange, orange, cream and burgundy. This card immediately popped into my head. I love these little birds from CTMH. I just used it on a card in the post below. This time instead of stamping them I traced them out on felt. I have not recieved my package yet from PTI that was just released on the 15th that included the new orange. I did have Pumpkin Pie cardstock and ink from Stampin Up. The light orange is PTI Summer Sunrise. The Love you Forever is from PTI Heart Prints. The polka dot is PTI Polka Dot basics II. The swirl is embossed from Cuttlebug folder Devine Swirl and the tad bit of burgundy is PTI Scarlet Jewel. OH! the frame is cut from the Cricut Home Accents Cartridge. Everything is mounted onto PTI Rustic Cream Cartstock. I hope you enjoyed looking. Thanks for coming by! Have a great night!
Cheers!

Autumnal and beautiful! Love how you traced the birds out and the pumpkin pie works for a great substitute. Let me know what you think about the orange zest and how it compares...if you will. :> I have been floored by what I've seen created from this inspiration pic and yours definitely fits that inspiration bill! :>
