It's a Blue & Orange Kind of Day...

This is my second card tonight, and this one also uses blue and orange! Well, I am at least using up scraps!


This one does, of course, hit several challenges. All but Caardvarks are new challenges for me! (Unless you count Cute Card Thursday, which I did in my last post, but since I did both cards the same day, I am still going to say it's new for me!) Here's the information you're looking for:
  • Caardvarks requested a shaped card! Round is definitely a shape - or should I say a circle is definitely a shape.
  • The Cuttlebug Challenge blog asked for a monogram. This is the second time in about 10 days I have taken on a monogram challenge - I really like the negative monogram look. Also, as being the Cuttlebug Challenge, you will see when you look through my V I have embossed my kraft layer with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.
  • Three Clovers also asked for a shaped card.
  • Cuttlebug Spot asked for brown with blue or orange. I gave them blue and orange (and of course the brown) so I am good!
  • And I am going to throw this one into Cute Card Thursday, as it has much more bling than my card in the previous post (although that one had bling too!) I think the rhinestones on the scallops gives it some feminity - that and the bow!!
That two for tonight...if I do another, I don't plan on blue and orange! LOL

I really like that font! I might buy it or find a similar font and buy SCAL!

i ♥LOVE♥ the way you have echoed the circle shape throughout the card: in the scallops, the little round gems, the patterned paper, the shape of the monogram; i also loooooove the way you've used the "negative" aspect of the punched out letter! FABULOUS! ♥
