Blog Hop Details

Create a card or project based on this fun gift basket from 1-800 Flowers.

Isn't this fun!?! And there's plenty of orange to get me excited. You probably know already how much I like the unpopular orange. LOL! I did read a few comments on SCS after the orange color challenge in April that some people were starting to like the color. That put a big smile on my face!

This is a close up to give you a better view of the shades of orange. Come on... admit you like it! * insert cheesy grin here *

Comparing Cardstock Colors

I made a color comparison chart for the
Stampin' Up! and Gina K. Designs cardstock.
The the new peach parfait designer paper is
combined with a lighter shade that matched
the retired blush blossom.
Go figure that it's retired!

The card in the post above is made with
peach parfait and the coordinating dsp.
