Camp. For me.

It's time for camp.  For me.  Not my kids!  :)


So about an hour ago, I decided to take this class after talking to my friend Suzanne about it several times.  Our summer schedule is about to slow down into the month of July, so I thought why not?  :)  I participated in the first summer card camp and learned so much!   So I signed up...and got to work!

Today's cards are made from sketches and colors combos that they have provided for us.  Here is my card....

The background layer is embossed vellum.  I added in a layer of Hawaiian Shores card stock stamped with Hero Art's Envelope Pattern background.  I added in a banner and then sentiments and flowers from WPlus9's new set Fresh Cut Florals.

One of the colors is orange.  Orange and me don't get along so well.  I always try.  But I just can't pull it off.  I almost left it off the card but then I decided to use a tiny bit in the flower centers.  I also varied a little bit with the yellow and used a super light green color for the leaves.

I'm really glad I signed up and am super excited to have one card done.   There is still time to sign up!  Click HERE to see all about it.

Thanks for stopping in!

  35. Gorgeous Laurie! Orange was never on my "go-to" list, but lately I'm finding it to be the perfect accent color. I catch myself adding just a touch to almost everything! LOL I guess you could say I've got an orange crush. ;)
