Orange You Cute...


To view an image up-close, please click on the photo.

Julee Tilman is having another week of fabulous Challenges, and I decided to take advantage of her wonderful sketches to make a little gift set. (To view the sketches, please click here.) I adore this sweet little stamp set and thought the images would make for a cute batch of cards. These cards are actually the size of gift tags, and it was surprisingly challenging to work on such a small scale. I tried to stick to one bright color with Whisper White, a little ribbon, and a single, fun button. With so little space, I had to be choosy with my embellishments and how I placed each element.
