Orange Sunset

The challenge last week at StampNation was to create a card using the color Orange.  To be honest, I don't use the color Orange very often.  When I think of that color I think of my friend Tracy, pumpkins, autumn leaves and blazing sunsets.   I decided to try my hand at an orange sunset.

To make this card I masked off the two sides of my white cardstock, then sponged various colors of yellow and orange.  After I peeled off the mask I stamped the Serene Silhouettes in black staz-on. 

The black mat only partially covers the card base.  I popped up the sentiment from Really Good Greetings using a dimensional.  I punched it out of one of my punches, but didn't like how it looked, so I trimmed it down using my sharp paper snips and layered it on a black decorative label punch.

This card was made with Operation Write Home in mind.  My plan is to include it in the next box I send in to OWH.  Yes, it reminds me of a fall sunset, but it can be sent anytime.

Creative Blessings,

P.P.S.  This isn't the card I ended up submitting for my design team post.  The card I chose was in Monday's post.  I actually made at least 6 Orange cards in the month of October, so I had several to choose from.
