An orangey Valentine



This week's Monday Mania at Club Anya and Friends is to not use any pinks or reds on a Valentine themed card. I thought about it, and seriously considered making a brown Valentine.

I decided to use Wild Sprout Stella that I won from Amy's blog and to go with orange, which just happens to be Amy's favorite color. I just substituted orange wherever I would normally use pink or red and it wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.

Here are the Copic colors that I used. Where's the green? It's the teeny tiny jade heart pendant that Stella is wearing.


Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Savvy Stamps sentiment
Ink: Memento, Spiced Marmalade
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny, Fancy Pants
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities Labels One and circle dies,
Stampin Up hearts and oval scallop paper punches,
pop dots, puffy heart stickers

  29. Just wondering ... are you using nestabilities to cut your cards on a fold or are they attached another way? Beautiful work as usual, Donna.
