Keeping the orange going

Hi Everyone, hope you are all managed to stay warm and dry at the moment in this dreadful wet weather (UK). I spent my last day off warm and dry with my gelli plate, and I just couldn't stop! This is one of my more simple prints that I have used for a birthday card for my mum. Following on from my last post where my main colour was orange I am pulled again to this colour choice, I think it's a subliminal message to myself that summer is on it's way (hopefully).
Background gelli print using honeycomb 12 x 12 stencil
Text Crafty Individuals stamp embossed in white
Black honeycomb die cut using Silhouette
Sunflowers and butterfly both Indigoblu stamps were just stamped on copier paper and covered with ultra thick embossing powder which gives them a lovely translucent look which doesn't really show up.
Sentiment Kaisercraft stamp
I would also like to enter this into the current challenge at:-

  7. I really love this, Amanda, and I am shocked to hear myself say that. Of course, I love *all* gelli prints, but...well, orange, not so much. That changed when I was forced to use orange as a design team member of the international website "Let's Scrap!" I have since come to embrace orange. I know that your mother will love this card! Well done! Mwah! KayW
