A Sweet Orange Bling

I made this card for the August Fan Club Dirt Pile challenge. This challenge was to use bling on your card! You can join in too if you are a member of the Fan Club over on Split Coast.I cut my card with circle nestabilities and embossed it with the Little Bubbles Cuttlebug folder to look like an orange to go along with my new image from Artful Inkables. I like making round cards now and then just for something different!

I sponged the orange and white card stock with So Saffron Ink to give it a little dimension. I only stamped the 'sweet' part of the sentiment for this card (the stamp says 'Orange you sweet'). I punched it out with a circle punch, layered it to a Wild Wasabi circle and added the green jewel brad. The image and sentiment are up on foam dimensionals. I tied the Amuse ribbon arond the fold between the orange and white panels.

I colored the image with some copics and added a dew drop and Dazzling Diamonds. Here's a close up view of the image.A fun summer card don't you think? This would be a fun invitation to a cocktail party!
