WT258 ~ Orange Love

Today on SCS the Way to Use It challenge was to use Orange. Oh boy, I am definitely NOT an orange person. I know there are some ladies out there that love orange, but I am not one of them. It is my least favorite color. I guess that's why they call it a challenge -- huh? I don't have a lot of time tonight, homework is still a bear. I guess that is what you get when you are off for 11 days straight.




I created the Tango card first, but I just couldn't get over all the orange -- so I did another one with Saffron instead. There's no stamping on these cards, just DP. This is the Haiku DP, it was in the Fall 2008 catalog -- I think. I do not know what possessed me to purchase this DP, but it came in handy. Oh -- I used the sketch from yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by!!

I love both of your cards and I love orange, but rarely make cards with it. I have the paper so this may get me to use some of my orange cardstock. Very attractive cards, Corie.
