Summer Breeze, Lot's of Orange!

Where I live (Tucson) it's been summer for a while. So it was so nice to see a couple of color challenges for summer. "Do You Stack Up, DYSU #22 Orange". is closing it's challenge in minutes. Making a card under 2 hours it still difficult for me. I'm still kinda new at this challenge stuff. (But, oh boy do I like them.)

My layout is from Card Pattern's #118, a really fun curved piece. And my colors were inspired by Inkspirations, challenge #72. I love these summer colors! I created the medallions from The Citrus Stack. The flowers were just calling out to be cut-out. My label is made in Corel 14. Some little punched leaves to bring it all together.

Cardstock - DCWV, Mango Frost, Citrus Print & Solid Stacks
Ribbon - Oriental Traders

Color Box Ink, Sewing Machine, Rhinestone, Stickles-orange and diamondhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

It's a great day...Enjoy it fully!

UPDATE: This card, which is close to my heart and quickly made, just won the as winner for Inkspiration Color Challenge #72! I'm so thankful and so very blessed.
