AAA Cards Game #33

So did you enjoy Valentine's Day? Judging from the massive response to our last challenge at AAA Cards you certainly intended to!

Are you ready to move on? Well Victoria has come up with another wonderful inspiration image for the next challenge at AAA Cards, so loved up or not be sure to join in!

Orange is the most favourite colour of my oldest grandson and given free rein he'd dress in orange from head to foot! Obviously he was very much in mind when I made this card:

The monster is a digi image from Digi Stamp Boutique and I also coloured him on the computer - a new technique for me.

I die cut a stitched rectangle and then stamped the sentiment. I love the spotty font of the Happy and the contrast of the smaller blocked birthday.

Stanps: Digi Stamp boutique, Monster Boo; Clearly Besotted, Happy Birthday
Ink: SU, tangerine tango
Die: Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles

As orange is supposed to be the happiest colour I know you're going to enjoy the challenge this week. And if you want more inspiration check out the DT creations, here, and I also have a pinterest board about orange, here.

 orange is the happiest colour

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Have fun and keep crafting!
