Orange and Mint


How is everyone?!?! I know its been awhile since my last post, unfortunately my Organic/Bio Chemistry class this semester is taking up must of my time!!! But this past week was Spring Break and i was finally able to get into my craft room! I made a couple DT cards and a card for a contest. I also did a card for a color challenge, but i missed the challenge, but i'm posting it anyway!

The color challenge included a dark and light orange along with mint. I really like this color combo, especially since orange is my favorite color!!! I'm also really loving the minty clothing and accessory's that you can find in stores lately!

I also wanted to play with a new spritz that i found at Michael's. For my card i stamped and embossed a houndstooth background, spritz, let it dry, then wiped the embossed areas lightly with a damp baby wipe. I trimmed it to fit my cardbase.

I trimmed a scrap piece of cardstock and stitched mint bakers twine around the rectangle. Then i stamped Happy Mother's Day.

I found some minty music pattern paper and die cut some flowers, and amazingly found some pearls that matched! I adhered the flowers to the orange piece, then to the houndstooth and finally to my cardbase.

I hope i'll be able to get back to the craft room soon! Just a month and half left of chemistry... hopefully i'll make it to the end! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by!
