Orange is the best color ever

Good Morning everyone! I've scheduled this post because by the time you read it, I will be on the road headed for unknown lands! tee hee.
My hubster has been planning a "Mystery Trip" for months now for our anniversary weekend (our actual day is tomorrow the 23rd) and he won't tell me a thing about it! I'm terribly excited, but I told him he had to let me know EXACTLY what to pack, because I was not going to pack dress clothes only to find out we were camping and vice versa. Can you imagine?! (that is SO like my husband too *grin*)

Onto today's card...isn't it pretty? OOPS. We're not supposed to like our work, right? Well, I love this card. Possibly due to the fact that orange is my favorite color of all time, but maybe because green and purple rank right up there too!

Uses PTI's Beautiful Blooms and Mixed Messages. It's pretty self-explanatory though, don't you think? Some ink, a few stamps and buttons and ribbon! Ok, vintage cream CS, Ripe avacado hybrid ink and ribbon, orangerie hybrid ink, plum pudding hybrid ink and buttons, cream twine, orange buttons, Ranger archival black ink.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll tell you all about our mystery trip when I return on Monday!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Oh you can totally like your own work - especially when it's as super as this little number!
What a beautiful CAS card - I always shy from orange but it looks so pretty here!
P.S Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog - blogger has been naughty and it's gone missing so please don't think I ignored it, I clicked publish and it's GONE! Thanks anyways though LOL! x
