Chocolate and Orange....mmmmm

Annabell Stamps have a new colour challenge - Chocolate and Orange together in a card.  I have just received a package ordered from A Cherry on Top and it contained some lucious card from Co'ordinations that I used in this challenge - excuses, I know, but I just had to use some! It's a man's birthday card.  There is an inset with a birthday message sticker on it added as well. Also added it to the current Challenge at Little Paper Shop for their LSP Monday where you had to add a distressed bit to your work - mine is torn, inked and sanded!

The paper is the left over from the box making last week - a freebie in a magazine.  The scrumptious card under it is Co'ordinations and the ribbon was purchased as is from a bin from the craft fair on Friday. The brads with the sentiment and the cake and the pressie were from the parcel today (ACOT) - yes, I know, but just had to...... and are from Karen Foster Designs ......swiped the DP with brown ink and sanded the orangy-pink dots to show up, layered and attached all to a baby 'nappie yellow' card blank I was given early this year. Added three star brads in orange on top LHS.

Had the grandy girls over for tea, and their parents, and just finished washing up, in PJ's and just a quick post before settling down in front of TV for a while  - it is a delight to be with teenagers at times, isn't it - especially when you don't have to live with it on a daily basis.  So much fun......
