Only Orange

Oh, wait...that was one of Stampin' Up!'s old, retired colors!  The cue word this week at CASology is orange though, and we have a few of them!  I am not really a fan of the color orange, unless it is a deep, rich orange, so I decided to go that route.
I had lots of  negative space leaves left over from the leaves I die cut for my workshop yesterday, so I decided to put one of them to use and use it as a stencil.  I started by sponging the center with Pumpkin Pie, then Tangerine Tango in the center and Cajun Craze along the outside.  Of course, I made a boo boo and got a little bit of ink on the outside of my stencil, so I covered it up by sponging the whole thing lightly, then spritzing with Tangerine Tango.  Oh, and I couldn't resist spraying some Crumb Cake Shimmer Mist over that too, before stamping the sentiment. :)  For the ribbon, I punched two small holes in the corner and threaded the ribbon through them like a button and tied it in a knot.  Much easier than trying to use adhesive!
