Friends with Flair and wierd colors!

I made two cards  for Friends with Flair this week with colors I almost NEVER use: orange and wierd khaki green. I had those colors in my paper stash, thought, and might as well use them, right?


This paper came from a Basic Grey century pack. I probably never would have chosen it on its own, but it is kind of pretty. The lace I think is from Mark's Finest Papers, and the stamps are from one of those fabulous Unity sales. The ink is Ranger distress.I got the idea from Kary Lim a few Fridays ago. Thanks, Kary!




The itty bitty was from that Happy Hour sale last week. I did the backdoor "buy all of them" route, those impulse buys are going to be the death of me, I think. The paper is Echo Park and inks are  Memento and Copics. The ribbon loops were a sample that came from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I colored the Paper Studio gems at the top with Copics. You can't really see it, be I also used Glossy accents on the orange so it's nice and shiny.

It's date night in Mailloux-land. YAY! Have a great weekend!

LOVE your clock card! I have that paper and haven't used it yet, either. The swirls and circles fit with the clock.
