Mornin' fellow stampers!
I hope the day is treating you well. Thankfully I'm not feeling nearly as scattered this morning and I'm ready to face the day with a smile on my face. :)
So I managed to re-visit that card I had to set aside the other night and this time it all came together quite nicely. I used the new Olivia Orange from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and she may just be my favorite of their newest release... seriously is it any surprise with her being all about orange? ;)
I wanted to play around with a different skin tone combination on her and after I had her colored her up I think I was subconsciously influenced by the Orange Blossom character from my Strawberry Shortcake days growing up, LOL!
I also made this for the KK challenge #63 to reduce, reuse and recycle. Originally I was going to use some packaging for my background but that wasn't working so in the end there is only one little thing on here that I re purposed and that is the button I added to Olivia's hair. It came off of an old favorite shirt of mine and I always thought that it looked like a sliced orange so I saved it for the perfect card. Well, it doesn't get more perfect than when the card itself is all about oranges, don'tcha think?
