Pleasant Surprise!


My friend Heather from the Papercrafts site served up a fantastic challenge this week. The challenge was to create a Thank You card using gray and orange! My initial thought was "bluck!' but I'm ready to eat humble pie and give my friend a big "Toot Toot" because I am loving! this combo.

Papers by Stampin' Up, Camera image by Stampin' Up, all other images by Close To My Heart, film transparency from an unknown company. The flower is from Martha Stewart and the bling is compliments of K&Company. Dontcha just love this color combo!?!

inside sentiment: Thank you for a lovely vacation!

Heather, you go girl!!

I was just telling Vicky that I'm thinking I like the color combo. And then . . . I see your card. Now I'm totally on board with this color combo. who-da-thunk it?
Yours is quite stunning. It looks like a piece of art. Love the film strip and the circle begind it. Just an all around gorgeous card and layout. You're rockin the Orange and Gray theme!!
