Color Hues - One Year Anniversary!

My friend and birthday sister, Nancy Leppek is celebrating one year of her new card challenge 
Color Hues

I am sure it has been a lot of work for her, but she enjoys it and after all, she has joined us retired crafters. As you can see the challenge is Yellow and Orange this time. There are prizes too. 

I got two for one with this stamp. It was not my original intention, but you all know how
 that shakes out sometimes. 

GKD Stamp Timeless Poppies
GKD Grateful sentiment die from Fluttering Fall Bundle.
I cut this to make a mini slimline card and used the rest of the stamp to make this next card. From my stash copper sequins and clear droplets.  I took a deep breath and did splatters with 
white and dark brown. 

I have used this stamp set a number of times and I can see more in the future. 
This card also used the Penny Black Die called Border Edges
Embossing folder by Darice called Wire Fence. Some twine from my stash and the Spellbinder die of the month Colorblock circles and stripes. Clear droplets from my stash. 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!
