TSG77 - Blossom of Orange

It's time for this week's challenge over at the TSG blog. It's TSG77 and it's a colour challenge by our very own incredibly talented Sandra and she picked the colours of green, orange and black.

I used the Flowers of Happiness set to use and the center piece of the card. The flower was stamped twice, water coloured, cut out and stacked to make it 3 dimensional. I then added the flower to another image from the set to make a little "window". The designer papers have been sponged with coordinating inks and run through my cuttlebug for some fun texture and as a finishing touch I added a pearl to the flower, brads to the corners and some spica glitter pen to the leaves :D

Don't forget that you can play along for prizes! To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that uses the featured color challenge then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (10-25-10). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
