Papertrey Peeps Challenge #3

Hello, Peeps!  This is the first challenge I've ever issued, so bear with me!  I thought I would give you all the challenge that I have been working on the last few days and that is a birthday card for my sister, who is also my best friend.  Her birthday is March 2nd, so the timing works out very well for this challenge.  Her favorite color is orange, bright orange, and I always have so much trouble working that color into a feminine card.  (Mine usually end up looking sports-team imspired, which can be nice, but none of my sister's favorite teams feature orange!)  So that is the challenge: a feminine card featuring orange zest.  Bonus points if you work in Spring Rain, her second favorite color or a tea theme, since tea is one of her favorite things in the world.

If you don't have orange zest, substitute another orange or a color that you don't use very often. Good luck and have fun. 

My devious plan is to have a bunch of cards I can CASE for my sister for future events! :) So thanks in advance for taking part in this challenge. 

Here's my card!  I used Friends 'til the End to stamp the background on Orange Zest cardstock.  I made a another layer with the label imanges from tea time stamped in Versamark and Fresh Snow on Summer Sunrise.  The teapot is embossed and stamped with Polka Dot Basics in Versamark on Spring Rain.

This is definitely going to be a challenge for me since I don't use much orange. I look forward to giving it a try though.

Although I made this card on February 19th... I just had to share it with you... because I loved creating this frilly card with Orange Zest! I just know everyone is going to have fun creating with this color once they try it for sure! My card is here....

P.S., I know this is going to sound dumb... but I just can't help it... what does "CASE" stand for ... I understand the implied meaning...but don't know the words it replaces... help help... :-)

I would have never guessed that orange and spring rain could work together. Love the combo.

Kimberly, I loved your challenge! Your card is fabulous and know your sister must have adored it! Everyone had such wonderful designs. At first I wasn't sure about the orange & light blue but found it works great together!

Thanks Kimberly for kicking me outta my comfort zone with these colours! I love your card and as a tea addict myself it's super sweet!
Finally managed to make a card for your challenge - hope you like it!
