Missing you..

Hey everyone! It's a little after midnight as I start this entry.. I started working on my card at 9. *Oh my..* I have to say, this week's Color Throwdown challenge gave me a bit of a headache. hee hee. Orange isn't a color I'm fond of but, I like how these colors came together once I finished the card. :) I used Ms Taylor's Sketch #90. I am trying her sketches for the first time. Yay! :)

I started out with PTI's Pure Poppy as base. I used patterned paper from a pack I got from Michael's. I thought it was such a cute pattern. It kinda matches PTI's Summer Sunrise, which I used for my blinged out birdie (Inkadinkado GemStone Birds). Stamped it with some black ink and cut him out. I propped him up on a Smokey Shadow circle and placed the whole thing on another piece of PP, pierced on all sides. The sentiment is from StudioG. By this time, I hadn't added anything that was a shade of Only Orange. After looking through my bins for something, I ended up adding Prima flowers with rhinestone centers. I lined them up as though it was a border, as the sketch requires. :)

I had so much fun with this one! Thanks for looking. Have a great Friday! :)
