Copic Creations Challenge #36

This is my first time entering the Copic Creations Challenge, and this week’s challenge is to use the color orange. I love orange, and this card is one of my favorites!

This card came together pretty quickly, and the natural colored cardstock really looks nice with the orange patterned paper and flower image. I used silver rhinestone “pearls” for the center of the flower and that really adds a nice sparkle! Here is a closeup of the center:

I used my new EK Success Circle Scissor Pro to cut out the flower, and will definitely be using this tool often. It cut the circle quickly and cleanly, and is so much nicer than my old circle cutter.

The flower stamp is one I like to use a lot, and I think it looks great in orange!

Thanks for looking!
