Monochromatic Challenge in Oranges

Yes, I am totally serious! I used this color combo for a color challenge on Stampin' Addicts number SACC36. At first I was a bit hesitant to use the oranges, but I really wanted to use Apricot Appeal. I don't usually use Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust, but I'm totally liking this combo. Very monochromatic, don't you think? Anyway, this card (or a very similar version) will be one of the make n takes for this month, so if your group doesn't have a workshop scheduled yet for January, call me ASAP so that we can get you on the calendar.

The flowers around the "F" are stamped in Apricot Appeal and some of them have been stamped off once. The Rhinestone Brad finishes off the flower nicely and the bow is Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain attached with a mini glue dot.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.

Recipe: Vintage Vogue stamp set. Really Rust, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, and Very Vanilla cardstocks.
