Orange it is!

Here's a new challenge for Color Me Creative Classroom
The theme this time is :
Add orange to your project:-) 

our wonderful sponsor this time around is Bugaboo designs
and one lucky winner will receive 7 bugaboo digital images:-)
This was so much fun, although a bit out of the range what I like to use, I tend to use orange more near Halloween but not much of it during the rest of the year. I have no clue why its just not a go to color for me, but I was pleased the way my card came out- yes a little on the simple side but I like doing something different:-)
Thank you to Bugaboo designs for sharing this adorable image with me to create withXOXO
This cutie can be found HERE Her name is BBrat Ballerina
I love this sentiment that I used, but didn't have a stamp to ink, so I just made it on my computer and printed it for my card, I also decided not to use the white highlights on her cheeks just as a personal preference this time :-)
Other Challenges I would like to add my card to are:

Sister Act Card Challenge:Anything goes

Crafty Ribbons challenge: to use ribbon on you project

Waiting For My Prince and the Paper Nest Dolls News

Hi Everyone, 
Ok I have some news, some times you click with teams and sometimes you just don't feel like you can give what a team is looking for do you all agree? 
This is my very First post as a Paper Nest Dolls "Doll"

Woo Hoo!!

This past weekend, I went with a wonderful friend I met here in Orlando to the ScrapFest at the Gaylord Palms in Florida, I was so excited to be going to be in my "Element" since I have not been around many paper crafting people and have been at our house in Florida feeling a bit lonely! Well it was there that I happened upon a line of rubber stamps that I ...Yes I have not seen before!!! WOW :-) I met the owner and her husband and little boy and between chatting about rubber stamps and blogs and the show I felt like I had know her my whole life, like I was meant to meet this wonderful new friend, and so the story begins that I bought quite a few of The Paper Nest Dolls images Created By Christine, who is also the owner of The Paper Nest which is located in Fort Myers, Florida! I met her again Saturday and kept bumping into her the whole weekend at the different booths, well to say the least, emails and text messages I felt more like family to Christine, LOL I was asked to be on the "dolls" DT and accepted:-) 
I am happy to show the card I created with one of the stamps I got at the expo which is called "Waiting for my Prince" she is in Red rubber and digital image too, But boy are these stamps made beautifully! They ink up and stamp wonderful!!

 I colored this cutie with Copic markers, and used a sentiment I found in a google search and printed it up with my own fonts for this card, MME paper "The sweetest thing in tangerine was used 

used tiny rhinestones that I added the BG11 Copic marker on to add jewels to her crown! and yes some glitter to part of her skirt:-) Please go look at The paper nest Challenge blog too for wonder inspiration besides the Paper Nest blog that the DT members add their creations to often:-) Christine has all the stamps at the online store for you to see:-)
