Sweet Citrus Love

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 413 - White Lucky Tangerines, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 416 - Dry Embossing with Sanded Pattern Paper, Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 207 - Theme - Love is in the Air and for my layout last Saturday's SKETCH SATURDAY CHALLENGE # 245.
I used a piece of pattern paper from The Paper Studio "a day at the Beach" stack matted on white, embossed with Cuttlebug "Leaves" then sanded. on the white oval I inked the image with Stampin Up's Markers Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade Markers, huffed and stamped. I stamped the large citrus image in Only Orange Craft Ink them heat embossed with clear irridescant powder and tried several times to get a good pic showing the shimmer :( oh well it is what it is. I cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I tied some orange twine. I stamped the sentiments in tangerine tango.
I have a granddaughter that LOVES sour things and fruit so this will go to her Thursday even though I rarely tell her she is "sweet" ;) LOL.
Now off to work I go.
