I just discovered her challenge blog, and while my card doesn't conform to this month's challenge,it is optional, so I just had to show this one off. My image is called Image 12 (I think I may need to talk to Lizzie about giving her girls real names - don't you think this one would be nice if called "Sitting Pretty?).
Anyway, I plunged my hands into my stash, and came upon this embossed flower frame, which I gently swiped with a burnt orange stamp pad. I had in mind the metallic orange paper for the background, so then I colored my girl with Copics, placed her onto the metallic paper and framed her with the die-cut.
The color of the framed paper didn't go well with my other vivid color, so I used adhesive-backed jewels to give her a shiny showcase. Since she's looking off to the side, I gave her something to focus on, my butterfly, and then adhered to entire scene to yellow glitter paper for the background.
My sentiment came from a card kit (long pulled apart) and colored up to go with my color scheme. I don't normally like to use orange and yellow, especially together, but I like the pairing on my card. How about you?
