Orange Opulence at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month, so that means it's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge.  Our theme this month is Orange Opulence although your card does NOT have to be opulent, if you don't want to!  What we do ask is that it is MONOCHROMATIC ORANGE, but we don't mind a hint of another color if necessary.

And here's my card...

Card: SU's whisper white, cajun craze, and tangerine tango
Ink: Wild honey and carved pumpkin Distress Inks
Marker: Dark Orange 1 Spectrum Noir (to color the rhinestones)
Stamp sets: SU's Timeless Textures
Tools and embellishments: Birch Press big sugar script dies, Ranger Glossy Accents, and unbranded rhinestones

As regular readers will know, I love joining challenges at Pixie's Snippets Playground... indeed, this card is no exception!  You'll also likely know that I'm finding crafting time difficult to come by, so am cheating a bit and also entering this card into Darnell's very special Thank You Di Blog Hop!  I had wanted to create something special for Di, but given the sentiment on this card, made from snippets of card, it's also worthy.

Thank You Di Blog Hop at djkardkreations

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.


  1. A great card - lovely sunny card

  2. Hi Em . . . haven't seen you in aaaages! Love the look of this snippets card and I really like that grungy SU flourish.

    I'm celebrating Darnell's Surprise Blog Hop Party for Di with a gang of Playmates around the back of the bike sheds, come along and find us for some fun! I STILL have some chocklit truffles left, but they're going fast!

    Hugs, Sarn

  6. A lovely card Em - as Jane rightly says -it's so sunny!

    It was such a surprise to find out about Darnell's blog hop - many thanks for your kind words. Needless to say I'm really deeply touched by so many wonderful friends joining in - what a wonderful gesture. Thank you so much!

    Lots of people have used the same card for Darnell's blog hop as well as the Playground - so it's most certainly not cheating in any way, shape or form! I'm delighted you joined in Em!
