This is a close up of a Double Orange Sunrise Hibiscus that was blooming
in our yard on Christmas Day last year (2008). I was playing around
with the camera and got some really close photos trying to show the texture
of the petals, stamens, etc. When I read the challenge for today this photo
called my name and said "Hey! Use me today!!" So I did. LOL!
The challenge was to use cardstock, a piece of patterned paper, an
alphabet (stickers, chipboard, stamps, whatever) and one embellishment.
Well, I used some leftover October Afternoon patterned paper from a
day or so ago and some Michael's dollar bin glitter chipboard letters
that I have had for a while. There was only one 'O' in this
set of letters (27 to a package) so I trimmed the lower
case 'Q' to make a second one. Sharp scissors are a big help! : )
Even so this layout came together pretty quickly.
Here are my supplies:
Cardstock - from my orange stash
Striped patterned paper - October Afternoon
Lime green glitter chipboard alphabet - Michael's $1 bin
Ghost Clear Extras photo corner - Heidi Swapp
Black ink - Sharpie
Well, it is up in the Flickr gallery and I'm off to fix the waistband
on Punkin's skirt for school tomorrow. See you in the morning!
