I Love Orange!!

Hello girls! I’m so happy today is Monday, and I am able to share this card with all of you. It has been crazy around here dealing with some technical difficulties ~ computer related! Good grief! I thought I wasn’t going to be able to even add this post to my blog. Hubby decided to add new software to his computer and my laptop. For some reason, the printer did work at all! But after a couple of hours, he fixed the problem and I was able to print out the image for my card – yeah!!

To make matters worst, I broke my cuttlebug C plate. I didn't know that most of the crafts stores don't carry them. So I had to order it from  this store. By Thursday morning, I was able to create this card for the new challenge at The Pink Elephant. By the way, this week we have a color challenge – which is to make the color orange the focal color of your card. So, here is my card!

This card uses one of the images from Digital Delights. Don’t you love the image I picked for this challenge? You must be thinking… an orange raccoon? Yes! I colored him in orange. Ahem!- I needed to use orange somewhere, right?

I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils. The patterned paper is from Making Memories. I stamped the sentiment and then cut out with one my nestability dies. As a final touch, I added the button, silver brads, and some glitter on the cupcake.

I had so much fun creating this card using this adorable and fun image. Hope you will find the time to make your own card! This is such a fun challenge, just give it a go…!!!

I’m off to see what the rest of the DT has created for this challenge. Thanks for visiting and happy stamping!!!!!
