Artastic and orange (erk!)

If there's one colour I don't like it is orange.But I forced myself to do this challenge for Artastic because I liked the criteria.

I used my new cuttlebug to do 2 of the background papers.The spotted one is scenic route.Melody's dress was pinky orange and I happened to find this lace scrap at Vinnies which matches exactly.

When it came to stitching the layout on my scanner,George's face was blurry despite me trying several times.They are a good looking family.

Hello there;0) Love the lace! I love to use lace on my cards and LO's. Adds a great texture and feminine touch. I have a hard time using orange as well but it sure came easy with this months criteria. Thank you for joining us over at ARTastic! Hope you had a great weekend;0)

Hugs xx

Thanks for playing along.

I think you've done a fabulous job with the challenge Julene. The textured Cuttlebug papers lift the photo and that lace is so beautiful. Well done, it's always lovely to see your work.
