Well, orange you just the cutest!

I feel good about this title. LoL.

Well, It's been over a week and a half since I've participated in any challenges, so I figured it was definitely time for another one (or two).

This is my first time playing along with 365 Cards. The challenge was to create a card using your least favorite color. It was easy picking the color! I almost never use orange. Dark yellow, "orangey" yellow-- yes. But not orange. In fact, I have a folder where I have all of my little scrap pieces of paper separated by color: there is NO orange in there. At all. I did, however, find five sheets of bright orange paper that had never been cut.

Just to help spark the creativity a little bit, I combined this with this week's Use It challenge. The challenge for this one was to use eyelets, something over 1 year old, and polka dots. I had eyelets-- orange ones at that! In case it's hard to see, they're in the button which doubles as my "1 year old" thing. I don't even remember where I got the round epoxy stickers, but I'm pretty sure they were on clearance a kagillion years ago. Anyway, I punched a couple of holes in it to look like a button, added the eyelets and threaded the ribbon through.

The polka dots are on the paper. It's hard to see in the picture, but the white background paper has the embossed polka dots, just like the ones on the green leaves.
