Happy Orange Birthday


I've been playing with my new JOFY stamps.  I love those spiky bursts of flowers, and the unusual butterfly.  I've used the colours from colourQ:


This week's One Layer Wednesday hostess, Karen at Snippets, wants us to use orange on our one layer card:

'Orange' You Glad You Played Along- create a card with Orange on it.

I've based the design on this week's CAS(E) This Sketch but jiggled it round a bit:


And at this week's Muse, the inspiration is provided by Janet.  Isn't that a fabulous tree?


Just in case you're wondering how I've made the leap from blue Christmas tree to orange flowers: placement to the left, baubly leaves/flowers with highlighting, star becomes butterfly.  Yes/no?

  5. Thanks for reminding me that I too have a JOFY stamp. Um, where? Need to pull that out. I love your take on the various inspirations and I just plain love the bright cheerfulness and artistic edge to your card.
    Oh, and I'm kinda diggin' the word "swish". Might have to look that one up in the British to American dictionary ;)
