Orange you glad I'm thinking of you?

Hello my friends!  This card is quite clean and simple: I'm on a CAS roll so far this week, here on my blog. :-)  Just getting around to posting things from months ago.

All this white reminds me that we are expecting a bit of snow this coming weekend.  I love snow! It's a beautiful blanket for the earth. It makes me want to get all comfy and cozy inside my little home, my sanctuary.  

I used Sizzix Flower Layers & Leaves to create the orange blossom, and topped it with an orange gem.  I do not have any banner dies, so created my own, using a patterned paper scrap from Stampin' Up!, backed with gray cardstock.  The sentiment is from Power Poppy.  Have you stopped by Power Poppy before? The design team's creations are AMAZING. Marcella Hawley, chief of PP, is one classy, down to earth, fresh-spirited, talented, generous, funny lady.  I am in awe of her. :-)

Thanks for coming by today.  Have yourself a beautiful, wonderful, blessed day, friends!

Stamps: Dynamic Duos: Peonies & Tulips - Power Poppy Paper: Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, pattern - Stampin' Up!; white - Papertrey Ink Accessories & Tools: Flower Layers & Leaves dies - Sizzix; orange gem - Recollections

Your orange flower looks fabulous against all the white! I do love orange in small doses. That is a pretty little sentiment, too. Of course, you know I'm a Power Poppy fan and very fond of Marcy. There is so much more to her beyond her art.
