Orange You Glad You Peeked!!!!

The last few days I have not been able to sit and craft *sadness*. I was recovering from a day surgery (which the power of good thoughts had me believing I was a machine and would be pumping out cards that day and yesterday....NOT!!!hee hee). So today I feel better and my nephews came to play with my kids, so that allowed me some time to craft. Can you say happy again, it feels marvelous to make a card after a few days. Maybe I will be lucky enough to make another one tonight. I do have 2 birthday cards I need to due. One for tomorrow...LOL. Nothing like procrastination...LOL.

Do you like surprises? I sure do and I got one today. When I was copying the color combo picture at Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge, I scrolled down and guess what I saw....can you guess???? I made TOP 5 for Color Combo #29, click here. *WHOOT, WHOOT*. I still have to copy my button for this one and the last one. What a feel good moment. Congratulations to everyone, I looked at all the works of art and they were wonderful!!! Thank you also for the amazing honor. The DT's and creator do an amazing job and thanks for taking the time to comment. It sure does make a person feel good. Today, I used their SPCC color combo #30, which were great colors as always. The sketch I used is just down below.

Laura Sketch #43 is just awesome. I knew what I wanted to do immediately! Please check out 2 Sketches 4 You. They have a bonus sketch for this week by Sankari's. Any sketches have to be in by midnight tonight US mountain time. Another last minute one for me. I hope to do the bonus sketch later tonight.
This is what a came up with. Everything just seemed to work.

I went looking through my stash of glitter and found the Stampin' Up Fine Supernova Glitter and orange yet *sweet*. Glitter was very where in my room and on me...LOL. A little clumpsiness on my part. So like a very nice Auntie I put orange glitter on my 15 year old nephew. Needless to say I think he thought I was nuts...LOL!!! I like pulling pranks on them. Oh and as you can see no embossing. What a change...LOL.
The card picture is a little dark, but when you look at it in person it sure does glitter. Hoping one of these pic's show you that.

Stamp: Stem Silhouettes (SU)
Paper: So Saffron, Only Orange, Very Vanilla, Washington Apple DSP
Ink: So Saffron, Only Orange
Accessories: Martha Stewart Punches (set), Ticket punch, So Saffron Brads, Fine supernova Glitter (orange, SU). Paper Piercer, Orange and yellow flowers, glue pen, So Saffron Ribbon.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day and hoping this is not the last time I see you today.
