Sunshine in the Orient

Hello.  Welcome.  Don't you just love the first of the month??  New challenges springing up all over the blogosphere.  Over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity we want to see Orange and Yellow.  Now isn't that gonna be pretty?!!  Those bright beautiful hot colours after the long grey, or in many cases white, spring that a lot of folk have had.  So come on, grab your stamps and your orange and yellow crayons and make yourself a bit of sunshine!!  

Here's my idea for a hot start to spring using 
Lost Coast Designs Oriental Doll

I stamped and embossed Oriental Doll on a piece of yellow card then paper pieced her by stamping and embossing orange and yellow scraps and fussy cutting them.  I used gold metal pieces for her face and wings.  I cut the yellow panel and an orange layer with Sizzix Deckle Edge dies and mounted it all on a yellow Bazzill Dots base card which I smeared with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  

Hop on over to the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity for more Orange and Yellow inspiration from the team and the linky.  Join the fun and win Lost Coast dollars.  See you there!!
