Color UN-favorites

This week's Tiddly Inks challenge was to use green, yellow, orange and blue in your project. I immediately remembered this scrap of Scenic Paper I'd bought years ago. I bought the only sheet of this paper and I have been hoarding leftover bits of it (reverently) for years. Don't ask me why. I hate green AND I hate orange. So, how could I love this paper so much? A true sign of a very serious paper addiction. :)

Coincidentally this week's iCopic challenge was to use your "unloved colors". Well guess what? Orange and green qualify for me! I did, however, get to use one of my very LOVED Tiddly Inks images, Wryn. She is just the cutest!

Since the paper was rather, um, busy (to put it mildly!) I kept my embellishments to a minimum. Just a few Prima flowers with brads, a sprig of a Martha Stewart leaf punch and an old TAC sentiment stamp cut out with a Nestabilities die.

Hope you found some time this weekend to get crafty!
