Orange Flower

For some reason, I am in an orange mood today. When I sat down to create something today, I kept reaching for papers that had orange in them. There is a site called Card Sketch A Day that I sometimes use for inspiration when I want to try something new. Sketch challenges really are my favorite ones to do because that is where I seem to run out of ideas first. The sketch here is loosely based on their sketch for today. I flipped my shorter and longer pieces and I added a ribbon instead of a sentiment. My stamp here is from Stampabilities. I stamped the image using Palette ink and then colored it using Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The paper is DCWV and there is a decorative accent (pretend dew drop) in the center of the flower. I colored the dew drop yellow to match what I had colored. That ribbon is from Target from the wedding section. Have you seen that ribbon? There are several colors and I think two widths available. Each roll has a ton of ribbon and is only $2.99.

Did you watch all the festivities today? I wasn't able to see much of it as it was happening since I was at work. I have seen some of the hilights of the and am sure I will catch more of it tonight. I love the history and the traditions that are associated with these things. It has been interesting hearing how some of the traditions got started and how certain things connect the office of President from year to year. Thanks for stopping in tonight!
