orange you glad...

Hey friends!  I have another card to share that I made for the current Freshly Made Sketches 200th sketch celebration.  I used the color combo over at Color Throwdown, as well.   I was going to make a fall card using pumpkins, but decided to use my Reverse Confetti Fresh n' Fruity stamp set and the matching Confetti Cut dies.  After cutting my white panel I cut it in to two pieces using a die from the A Jillian Vance Design Slippery Slopes & Stitched Clouds dies set.   A piece of green cardstock was also cut using the same die.  I trimmed down the bottom half of the white panel and then layered the green piece behind it so that when I added the top piece of the white panel the green showed through.  The sentiment was stamped on the top and bottom panels using black ink.  The oranges were die cut and then stamped with orange ink using the solid orange image from the set.  Some Memento Cantaloupe ink was stamped over the top using the polka dot orange image to give the orange a soft look and add a little texture.  Die cut some leaves, stamped them with green ink and added them to the oranges.  I have really enjoyed putting different spins of the FMS layout. 

Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; green; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Memento Tangelo, Cantaloupe and Tuxedo Black, Nick Bantock Sapmoss Green
