New Challenge #54 at Glitter n Sparkle

Well hey there again,
and if I'm back here, 
it must mean its Sunday again.
Well this week has been even more hectic than last week, 
as I now have family staying with me for a while. 
So I am escaping as much as I can into my own little crafting world.

This Weeks Theme at Glitter n Sparkle is:
Add Some Orange

Our sponsors this week are:- 
Digi Darla who are offering 
5 images from the store. 
Sandi's Samples who are offering 

4 images from the store.
The Stamping Chef who are offering 

3 images from store.

For my 1st Project this week I used the 
Don't be Sad Digi Stamp 
from The Stamping Chef (one of our Sponsors)

To make this card:-

I hand-cut the basic shape for my Base Card 

from tracing round the die cut, 
on a Cream Pearl Card from Ross Paper.
I then die cut some Pearl White with Orange Flowers 
Card (from my stash) with 
the Frame Circle from Marianne Design.
Using the Sizzix Framelits Circles #2, 
I cut out the inside circle from 
some plain Orange Paper that I had in my stash,
 then centred my cut out Image on top of that.
I colour the digi stamp in using my Promarker pens.
I used my own sentiment for this card, 
which I coloured in with the Promarker, 
and die cut out.
I then used some textured Orange paper, 
which I punched out using the Lace Trim X-Cut Punch,
which I put inside the Card.
To finish the card off I backed the sentiment onto 
2 Blue Paper Blossoms 
(from Dovecraft - Back to Basics Christmas). 
Then I put some Light Blue Ribbon down the edge, 
3 Orange and White Candi's on the bottom and 
some Silver Holographic Glitter 
on the words of the sentiment 
(all which are in my stash).

My 2nd Card for this week is the 

Lil Indian Harvest Digi Stamp 
from Digi Darla (one of our Sponsors)

To make this card:-
I used a Plain Orange Card for the back folded Card 
and the main picture is backed onto a 
plain White Card, both from my stash.
To make the rest I 1st Weaved some 
Orange Spotty and Red Spotty paper 
from 'Love from Teddy' 
(from the Making Cards Magazine 2/13)
together into a square
Then I die cut the corners out using the 
Sizzix Framelits Circles #2.
I then Punched out a 6" circle with 
the X-Cut Multi Shaper Blosson Punch, 
on White Spotty paper from 
'Love from Teddy', 
which I then cut into quarters, 
for the corners.
For the middle I used the X-Cut Scalloped Oval 
and die cut some of the White Spotty Paper, 
and for on top of that I die cut out the 
Digi stamp using the 
X-Cut Oval.
I used Promarkers to colour the digi stamp in.
For my extras on the card, 
I used the Orange Pearls from 'Anita's', 
all around the Scalloped edge, 
and in the middle of each of the Blossoms.
Then I made a Gold Ribbon Bow 
with a Copper Medium Gem 
for the left of the card 
and 3 Orange Spotty Feathers 
for the right.
