Embracing my Inner Orange ....... ;)

Happy Wednesday!!  Today is the day Inktegrity digi stamps releases it's new challenge for you!  Have you taken the Inktegrity's Hump Day Inspiration Challenge?  You should - check out this awesome sketch!   And where do you go to play along?  HERE!

Here is a sample for you ~ a card I made based on the colors of my friend's baby quilt :)

The sketch ............

Okay, internet issues are solved and here's the card again! :)
I humbly apologize - I meant to load this last night but I ended up being glued to American Idol (will this season EVER pick up?!! ) and the fabulous premiere of Glee!!

Straight up - I don't *do* orange!  For some reason it's the most overlooked color in my craft room, poor little orange!  I buy stacks of cardstock from PTI and SU and when it's down to bare bones empty, lil 'ol orange is usually still standing.  Sad ..... considering I live in the ORANGE belt and SUNSHINE state!!

When my good friend showed me her new baby's room with specially made quilts and beddings, I spied some orange among the blues and greens.  It really flowed well together and I remembered I actually had some dsp with a similiar pattern, lol  (Now I know you crafter's get that, right?  You see something and think "OH! I have paper to match that!")  Seriously .......

So I am embracing my inner orange!  I pulled from the colors of this Dreamy2 (that's the real name, tee hee!) to use as the backdrop and print out this even dreamier Teddy image from Inktegrity, added a dollop of orange from Basic Grey and played along with sketch #7 ~ albeit a small twist.  Remember! You can rotate the sketch, flip the sketch, but keep the basic sketch pattern and we'd really love to have you play along this week!  Joni, Inktegrity's owner,  always offers the most generous prizes!! :)

I hope your day is orange-a-licious!!!
