{Pin}spirational Challenge #17

(If you're looking for my Shopping Our Stash post, it's directly below this one - It's sure to get you in the mood for Christmas!!!)

Today begins another challenge at {Pin}spirational Challenges!  We'd love to have you come join us and who knows, you may even be our winner for the week and receive a prize package from our sponsor A Day for Daisies!!!
Stop by our blog and look at all the inspiration from the DT.


After looking at the inspiration photo, I saw oranges and chevrons!  I started to make some chevron looking things on the card and then remember I had this perfect paper instead.....so being my lazy self, decided to use this!  The image is an old one from SU and the sentiment from Stampendous.  This will be a cute card to send to a young person I think. 


Isn't this a dreamy bedroom!!!!

Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and check out our {Pin}spirational Challenges!

Outstanding card to go with that inspirational picture. You captured every element of the picture. Orange is not normally one of my favorite colors but this shade with that shade of green and the white made a stunning combo. I think I'll did out some orange cs and start working on a card now. Enjoy your day my friend.

Fun card, Lynn! I wouldn't have thought pea green and cantaloupe would look so fabulous together but what a great combo!

Love this Lynn - I would have used paper with chevrons too! The orange and green is one of my favourite contrasts so this card really appeals to me.

LOVE ORANGE! It is a too neglected color!
