The Softer Side of Orange


A bit of orange~a bit of lavender~ such a pretty combination from A Creative Mint ~ once a week Melissa at Lilybeanpaperie has a challenge using a collage of color from A Creative Mint ~I loved this color combo, had planned on making a Top Note Die quilt card, but once the 1" squares were punched, I loved them as they were!  I found an embroidered flower applique in my stash of sewing and decided to add it for a softer look~I love it when my sewing supplies and my paper supplies are in "harmony" together!
On a "good" note, I am still not over the nasty virus that grabbed me, but am feeling lots better~better enough that I plan on doing a scrapbook layout to drop off at our NEW~soon to open scrapbook store...I can hardly wait!!!
Have a nice weekend!!!

God love ya! I'm so sorry that I've been absent too and didn't know you were ill! It sounds like you are starting to feel better, but it sounds like you've been sick a long time. I do hope you are feeling better and keep getting better! I hate that you are sick! Your card is stunning by the way! Best, Curt
