Orange Rose

I worked an off-site for the store last week so I'm still pretty tired from it, hence the older card I'm publishing today.

Orange and yellow are not my favourite colours, so this card was a stretch for me.  The ribbon is dark green velvet, though it's hard to see that in the picture.

The rose stamp is from Stampin' Up and is 2 rubber stamps on top of each other.  They're hard to line up so I don't use the stamp as much as I'd like (and yes, I have a line up tool, though not a stamp-a-ma-jig, but it still doesn't line up properly).  I added the clear rhinestones to balance the rose, as I stamped it off center in the circle.  The dragonfly is a dollar store find.  Not sure where the sentiment is from.  If you're interested, ask in the comments and I'll look it up.

Very nice! Orange and yellow aren't my fav colours either,but together they look good- at least those shades do!

I like the orange. It's pretty. And the dragonfly is a really nice touch.
