Orange You Sweet

Hi friends! Life has been crazy busy lately but I managed to squeeze in a little stamping time last night, and I have to say I had a lot of fun making this card. I've been hoarding that little scrap of patterned paper in citrus colors from my Simon Says Stamp May kit because it works perfectly with the You're So Sweet stamp set, and I finally had a chance to use them together. 

I had to play along with Freshly Made Sketches this week as they are having their 200th challenge celebration, complete with lots of prizes! The theme challenge at the Simon Monday Challenge is Citrus with a Twist. Both provided great inspiration!

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: You're So Sweet (SSS)
Card Stock: White, Green Leaf (SSS)
Patterned Paper: Sunkissed (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Versamark, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), You're So Sweet Dies (SSS), Heat Tool
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Moonshine Sequins (SSS)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'd love it if you left a comment!

Inky hugs!

So cute, that paper matches so perfectly!
I have a strange question for you, do you still have this stamp set and would be willing to part with it? I'm asking because Simon Says Stamp sent me a surprise goodie, Dies for this stamp set, but not the stamp. The dies don't really work on there own.
let me know and thank you for your time
