Orange is the color of happiness, and I find myself particularly drawn to it in the cold, gray, winter months. In its darker shades, it's the color of warmth and coziness and pumpkin pie. Yum. For today's card, I went bright and cheerful, using SU Only Orange. This set from PTI hasn't seen enough action in my craft room yet, so I pulled it out and made a happy card!
Not sure you can tell, but there are embossed lines above and below the ribbon. I ran out of orange 3/8" ribbon a few months back and totally panicked. Nothing else would do but to run right out and buy not one but TWO spools. I'm good on orange grosgrain ribbon for a long time. What a relief!
Personally, I think there need to be teeny, tiny blings small enough for centers for these flowers, don't you? Does anyone know if the A Muse tiny twinkles are small enough? Just wondering. The Hero small bling is just too big. Sigh. Bling makes almost anything better.
And now to today's Orange Mojo Give-away! Which, of course, includes bling.
1. Four lengths of ribbon, including the rick-rack I used on this card
2. One length of craft floss (oh, I had so much fun with this the other day but haven't photographed the card yet!)
3. Maya Road velvet flowers...so gorgeous and tactile but not bulky!
4. PTI buttons
5. Tiny safety pins
6. Small brads
7. Hero Arts orange self-adhesive rhinestones
Today's Rainbow Mojo Give-away Question: What's your favorite type of ribbon to use on a card? Satin? Sheer? Rick-rack? Grosgrain? Skinny or fat or in between?
Note: I totally understand that it's hard to choose favorites, but maybe you can think of what you simply couldn't LIVE without or what you think of as your "go-to" ribbon. Or maybe you don't like ribbon at all, in which case I feel sorry for you. For me, my go-to is probably 3/8" grosgrain in all colors imaginable. A close second would be the satin-and-sheer I've found at Michaels.
As for yesterday's question, while I love all colors in the right context, my can't-live-without color is green (lime, apple, olive, sage, forest).
