Challenge #3

And this week it's a colour themed challenge and the colour is ORANGE!

It's that simple - just make a card or a LO that includes something orange. This challenge was inspired by a thread over on the I Love Hot Off The Press forum, and stems from the fact that my OH wears a LOT of orange - so obviously I had to do a LO of him.

I cut a 1" wide frame from the patterned paper and stuck it on to some orange card stock and then cut an 8" square from the left over piece of paper and stuck it on the centre, at a angle. The title was cut using sizzix graffiti and ellison block party alphas, and to finish off I put some eyelets (gotta love that cropodile!) around 2 edges and threaded some ribbon through. The frame with "Ash?" in at the bottom comes from the HOTP 8 x 8 retro papers.

The card was made using the HOTP Citrus Cardmakers Creative Pack, creative kit, ribbons, and Instant card art.

Don't forget to leave a comment telling us you've done the challenge and email your creation to so we can put it in our challenge gallery.

Have fun - can't wait to see your orange creations!

Excellent ideas, Looby! You really inspire me. I have that orange paper from HOTP and now I know what I can do with it. I didn't believe you at first about your OH wearing orange....but it's true ! LOL
