Bright Side of Life

Well here I am, the caboose on the May Project Parade Challenge train--toot-toot!! Have you enjoyed all the gorgeous cards the divas have come up with for this color challenge? There were just so many amazing variations, each of them so unique and wonderful! As soon as I saw these colors I was ready for some orange sorbet, lol!

The base of my card is Pumpkin Pie. I cut a piece of So Saffron a bit smaller than the base. I stamped the sentiment from Fluttering By in Cameo Coral, rounded the corners, and then inked and paper pieced the white panel. The Soft Sky panel was inked with Soft Sky and then I stamped a flourish stamp from Filigree Fantasy in Soft Sky. I stamped some little flowers from Floral Whimsy in Cameo Coral on the Cameo Coral piece. The big flowers from Petals and Stems were stamped in one of each colors and cut out. I stamped a small circle center from the same set in Cameo Coral and adhered them with dimensionals. The scalloped border was made with my SU! Slit Punch and a small hole punch. Once I adhered all of these together, I wrapped a piece of Berry Sorbet ribbon around it, added some brads next to the sentiment and then adhered the whole piece onto the card base! My goal for this card was to use each of the newly released Verve sets, guess I did it, lol!
