Happy Wednesday! 
Our challenge this week at 7 Kids College Fund, our challenge is to use the Orange Creamsicle as inspiration.

...and here is my card...

Paper: Citrus (DCWV)
Accessories: Flowers     

This offered a great challenge for me as I never seem to use orange. However, I love the card. I love her orange pants. I love how bright and cheery the card is. I carried the orange into her hair. Doesn't it look like it is on fire? I used a combination of Copics and Distress Markers to highlight and define her hair.

 I added some polka dot flowers to carry on the polka dots in her shorts.

I got this sweet Chippie from Make it Crafty. I used a white paint dauber, peacock embossing powder, and then added a layer of sparkly embossing powder to give the dragonfly some pizazz. 

Thanks for stopping by today, and check out the great selection of Mo Manning Stamps at 7 Kids College Fund,

Lovely card as always Julie! Gorgeous choice of colours, and I love the little dragonfly, such a perfect detail.

Your Distress Marker grassy scene tutorial is awesome to! It's so easy to follow and the result is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing :)

Have a nice weekend,
