Chocolate Orange Dare

It's F-F-F-Friday and another chance to join in with the fun on Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. This week we are 'very' daring you to use the colour Combo Chocolate Orange. My mind was whirling with those retro colours and I thought they would be ideal for 'Grandpa and Sarah' one of my latest Digi-Stamps available here. I followed the fab sketch over on Truly Scrumptious and also adhered to the rule of only using an 'altered' flower. I die cut my flower using a big Sizzix die and used orange, brown and gold glitter to colour it. I love die cutting my sentiments out of funky foam, which is what I have done here, so I am entering this card to the first 'Pile it on' Challenge which is to use a non-stamped sentiment.
I have also used my Cuttlebug to emboss the script on the centre panel, my Nestabilities to cut the circles and scalloped circles and Quickutz dies for the decorative corners. The patterned paper is by DCWV. I have coloured my image with Copic markers and cut the sentiment from funky foam with my Go Kreate dies.
Looking forward to seeing your Orange and Chocolate creations.
Not long 'til the weekend!!!
Ciao for now!

This is beautiful Sandra. I love the idea of die cutting with funky foam, I've given all mine to a friend as I'd had it for years and not used any of it - typical!
Gorgeous and unusual colour scheme and I love that embossed panel.
Have a fab weekend.
