Turquoise and Orange - one of my favorite combos!

I've always loved this combo together.... it's just plain cheerful! I've been using it quite a bit lately and I haven't even received the new Marrakech paper from Basic Grey yet!!
The first image is the project made for todays Round Top Box challenge on SCS. There is a template in the forum for this box, which you print off the computer and decorate. I used the super cute little Twitterpated stamp set from Imaginisce - only $4.25 for 6 stamps! The paper is from October Afternoon's Daydream line - the collection of 5 papers is $5.00 and it's also sold by the single sheet for $1.00 each.


The second image is from American Art Stamp called "Angel with Bunny". I colored the image with copic marker and paper pieced the wings with a scrap of my new Making Memories 6x6 pad Chloe's Closet. The embellishments are also from the Chloe's Closet line.




Let me know what you think of the turquoise and orange color combos....do you love it as much as I do?? Also let me know what you think of the new Basic Grey lines? Which one is your favorite - Porcelain or Marrakesch?

Marrakech is my fave! And oh yea I like orange and turquiose. In fact I just plain adore orange ... it's my favorite color. This year I did my valentines in orange and pink and a touch of yellow on some. Oooo they were pretty.

Beautiful job. I make cards by recycling used ones. They come out pretty cute and everyone loves them. It helps on spending $$$, plus they are like your catds...more personal.
