April 6, 2014 - Aussie DT Challenge and Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  Are you ready for something exciting???/  Well we are celebrating our one year anniversary on the My Besties Aussie Challenge Blog and we are inviting you to celebrate with us.  We are having a Blog Hop with some awesome "candy" for the winners who go "blog hopping" with us.  Now come on, you know you like candy and you know you want to win, so come on and visit all the blogs and you may get some awesome prizes.

Our challenge this time was using Brown and Yellows.  This was definitely out of my comfort zone because I rarely use yellows and browns together even though I think they look really good together.  My color family tends to lend itself to the purples, pinks, soft greens, etc.  But I had great fun creating this card for the challenge and hope that you all like it.  Since I love to shop, this image was perfect for me.  :-)

Supplies Used:
Distressed Ink Markers
Miscl Papers on hand
Wild Orchid Flowers
Memory Box and Spellbinders Dies
Martha Steward Border Punch

OK now for the fun.
