Use Orange at Divas by Design

Good morning.
It's a lovely bright and sunny morning here in Gloucestershire today - which is just perfect for what my DH and I have planned. We are going to a Craft Fayre at Westonbirt and then for a stroll around the arboretum so fingers crossed the weather holds.

Today it's the turn of Team B to share some inspiration over at


and this week the fabulous theme is


As I am all 'Halloween'd' out I decided to get ahead and make a birthday card for my brother:

Card Ingredients:
Image: 'Need for Speed' from our sponsor this week - Kenny K
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: Bo Bunny 'Autumn Song' from The Stamp Basket 
Sentiment: Stampin Up
Memory Box: Cosmic Stars
Spellbinders: Labels 22 and Plain Circle Nesties
The cardstock I have mat and layered onto looks black in the photos but it's actually a bottle green that co-ordinates beautifully with the DP's

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of my lovely DT buddies.
