Skinny Tangerine

A couple of weeks ago I made a 3" x  6" card.  It had butterflies on it.  You can see it here.  I kinda like this size card.  It's a good size to sit on one's desk to enjoy.  It just so happened that I had a 3" x  6" card of Textured Tangerine Tango in my scrap bag and a card was born.

Oh, and the reason I was looking in my scrapbag for Tangerine Tango was because it's one of the colors in the ColorQ #72 challenge this week.

I used a technique called cutting out of the box for the design.  I used the paper cutter and stopped short of the blue flower.  Then I cut the top and side of the flower with paper snips.

The ribbon is gathered up on a piece of sticky strip.

Bonnie, terrific card! Those colors are fabulous and I have all of them. Wish I could find time to play that challenge. Just made a card and I need to do something else now. LOL I love that Tangerine Tango but can never quite figure out what to do with it. Your technique just makes this card more gorgeous. Such a pretty ribbon and sentiment piece, too. I guess you could say I just love it all.

LOVE that "skinny tangerine," Bonnie! Excellent work with the ColourQ colors. They are so pretty, but I'm at a loss as to what to do with them! You certainly didn't have that trouble with this delightful card. :)
