Dare U 2 Digi Stamp #23...Orange, Yellow & Black or White's Friday...although I don't know why I'm so happy when I have so much to do this weekend and not enough time in which to do it...can someone please lend me an extra day lol!

We have a brand new challenge for you over at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp today and we want you to use YELLOW...ORANGE & BLACK OR WHITE on your creations! This colour combination had me worried at first and if you pop over to the challenge blog you'll see that most of my teamies have gone for a halloween theme which would have been much easier...but no...divvy here made life difficult for herself and decided to do a pretty card lol! It kinda turned out OK but not how I thought it seems a bit busy for me...hmmmm!

The gingham paper on this card was a freebie download from Activity Village and the yellow cardstock is SU! I've used this gorgeous freebie flower digi from Chris...the Sketching Stamper and I have coloured with PM's and added some pearls to the centres of the flowers. The ribbon, flowers, brad and spacer are from my craft stash and the sentiment was created on the PC! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT creations on the challenge blog...there are some real crackers for you to feast your eyes on!

Thanks for visiting me today, I hope to get round all your blogs tonight and catch up on some comments :)

Oh Donna, I like your card because it isn't about any particular holiday - a beautiful sentiment that you can use any time of year! Fabulous! How you were able to tie in those colors is amazing! The pretty black laced paper is so complimentary and the ribbon is really elegant! I love that image too - so sweet. You're quite talented making your card WOW like it did!

this is a beautiful card Donna...I'm glad you chose to go pretty instead of halloween! Love that image and your touch of pearls is just lovely! Well done!

These days are just flying by, I wish to know who changed the days to contain only 20 hrs instead of 24...I'm greatly missing them! lol

Blessings, Maria
