Orange I Lucky?

Woohoo!!More good news for me!I made it onto the Digi Doodle Shop’s Best DT!I couldn’t believe it but I’m thrilled to bits!

Anyway this is my very first DT card for them.This week’s challenge is ORANGE YOU GLAD.So we want to see you use ORANGE on your card/project.There’s a fantastic prize up for grabs too in the form of a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at the Digi Doodle Shop.You’ll find so many beautiful images there I’d advise you to pay them a visit.Plus there is an October Sale and October Special going on at the moment.So if you need an image to take part this could be the ideal opportunity.If fancy playing along please visit Digi Doodle Shop’s Best and you’ll get to see the other new members wonderful  first  challenge cards too!

Here I’ve worked with Nasturtiums (it’s on sale too!).I just love these flowers!I remember my Mum growing these every Summer and the vibrant colours.Given the challenge theme these leapt out at me and as my Mum is sadly no longer with us it seemed a fitting tribute.I have to admit as a rule I don’t really use  much orange and after making this card I will definintely use it more.Originally I had picked a more subtle shade to back the image  but once I’d coloured them it just didn’t look right.So I had a rummage and found this piece of paper.Given the boldness of the colours I wanted to keep everything else a simple.I’ve often seen this quilting effect and I’d recently purchased a Martha Stewart Score Board for the bargainous price of £14.99 at my local craft warehouse   – so I gave it a whirl. I’m really pleased with my first attempt and it wasn’t too difficult which suits me very well!!
