Just A Quick One

I don't know why, but I am feeling really GRUMPY today! I must need to have an early night or something, so I thought I would cheer myself up by making a quick card, next time I will have to remember not to use orange, it's really not my color! Anyway, I don't mind the card at all, I cut out a big flower from the Bali Breeze DSP as the main focus for the card, and I stamped the lines from Live Your Dream Stamp Set on the white using pumpkin pie ink. The sentiment is from warm words and I punched it out with the 2 oval punches (a very wise investment!!) I found this little bit of misc ribbon that happened to work really well with the color scheme of this card. I finished it off with so corner pieces (I am sure there is a real word for these but it is just not coming to me right now!) and some handy work with the gel pen. I think this is the first time I have used pumpkin pie and been satisfied with the result! Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention, I used a blue rhinestone brad for the centre of the flower too! Anyway, Happy Monday Night to you :)

Hi Leonie,
This is such a bright cheery card I'm sure it chased your blues away! Pumpkin Pie can be hard to work with - but you made it look easy!

Hey Leonie.
I love this card. I know what you mean orange is so out of your colour range, but you pulled it off fantastically. Well done lovey.

This is a lovely card Leonie - the colours go together so well and even though orange can be hard to work with at times, you've done a brilliant job with this one!
