Flaming June

Good Rainy Day Monday,

   I can't remember ever seeing two many Challenges that say use ORANGE except at Halloween so I wanted to try my had this because I loved the picture so vibrant yet so vintage. Vintage is my favorite but never thought bright so this is the creation I came up with the the Challenge over at:  Hope you like it.

This is the front of the card - I have a few move shots to show you different aspects of this card below.

This is a list of the products I used:  Three different colors of Orange card stock, the frame around the picture is actually Bright Gold (here it looks green). The tassel so reminds me of the era of the picture.
Love the way the flower turned out bright orange using two different mediums to create it. Do you see the secrete pockets, you will in a later picture. There were lots of secrete passages, pockets etc from the era as well and I love adding them to a card for hidden notes, pictures, etc.
Products used:  The Sentiment (inside) is from Stamp It Australia "Once in a lifetime" 
                         Jumbo lace self adhesive ribbon.
                         Martha Stewart edge punch
                         Washi Tape - Gold
                          Adirondack Paint - Sunset Orange and Citrus Green
                          Versafine - black ink
                           Marianne - LRD370 and CR1245 364
                           Nellie's Vintage Photo
                           Cheery Lynn DL 245 Ambergris Tiny Doily
                                                B1175 Mini Fanciful Flourish
                           Magnolia Gold emblishments
                           Teri-riffic tape
 Inside for the Sentiment because the picture reminded me of day dreaming unfortunately gone bad but nothing wrong with day dreams.
 Hidden pocket on the left of the picture - perfect for note, picture etc.
 Hidden pocket on the right side behind the second layer of the card.

What a wonderful way to use the orange for my challenge this month. The layers work beautifully and you have included lots of little touches which make this more than just a card: the secret pocket; the vibrant orange stitching on the die cut and your very pretty blooms. A lovely card.
Thanks so much for joining us at Our Creative Corner this month.
