A Very Orange Card

Morning to you all, on this not so warm Friday
I am out of bed, sat here with a hot water bottle on my back
It still hurts a lot but at least I am walking today
I have a card to show today that I have to say is a first for me
I have not made anything SO Orange !!!
I have also made this for a challenge over at
I have to admit..I luurrrvvee their images
I do try to get a couple when they are available as digi's
I have used Lil Fashionette 60's Willow
I have used her a few times but NEVER in Orange
here she is..  how cute..coloured with pencil 
I was going to do Yellow/blonde hair but thought black would look better on the card
An easel card once again
the papers are from The Clipart Fairy (yummy range)
Die cut flowers with added gems
and some die cut leaves in white
Orange ribbon from my stash and a key charm
The easel base has the stamped sentiment on 
I used two die cut flowers under so it wasn't so oblong looking
and added flowers and ribbon to match the top.
And there you have my first Orange Card

I am also going to enter this into
I have used a key charm
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes with a bit of bling
I have the charm and gems on my flowers

and of course the Challenge I made this for

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon
