Twinkling Reeta Dita MTTSC23, CC219

Wow, how's that for a color combination outside of my comfort zone? So, in essence this was a true challenge for me because I rarely, if ever use orange on my cards. The color combination was from this week's Color Combination challenge on SCS...CC219, and it was to use Only Orange, Purely Pomegranate, and Brilliant Blue. I was able to ink up one of my new Greeting Farm stamps, Reeta. She's a cutie, and I couldn't wait to use her. Her diamond pattern on her skirt went so well with the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder that I couldn't resist. Also, I brought out my sewing machine and stitched just a simple zigzag pattern with a variegated thread around the two nestability shapes. I used the sketch for Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday (MTTSC23), and it was a fun one by Jacky this week! Check it out and play along because I always have a lot of fun with the challenges on the website!
