"Lovin' Orange"


Ok, remember when I said that orange was a challenge for me? I think I am overcoming that one too. Man, I am having so many breakthroughs this year. LOL This card can be for a boy or girl. I made a card similar to this at stamp mania. I really loved the layout. So I made my own. I also added the word window decorations with the brads. It is easy and it adds just the right touch. I added stickles to the candles to jazz it up a little as well. I am so sad because most of the sets I have are retiring with the new catalog. What am I going to do? I am not a demo so it isn't a traumatic for me as for some of you. I counted my sets that are retiring and I am losing 36 sets, which for me is a lot because most of the ones I already had were retired.
