CYS- orange and a button

For the CYS- or Challenge Your Stash challenge, we have the following prompt from April Hostess Jennifer: aka Jennifrann
~~use two of my favorite things this month--orange and buttons.

  I really loved this challenge.  I have an almost empty DP pack from MME called Tangeringe- it was $3.99 when I bought it- yep- a few years ago......  But I so love it! The background is Groovy Guava cardstock (retired SU). I used a retired SU set called Flowershop, which I also have the punch for.  (and have not used in ages.....).  The button and twine are from my stash.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.

The image looks so bright on my computer-TCV screen (still having computer issues), and looks more subtle on my blog....hope my images do not look so bright on my blog when you view it!!!).  I bought a new computer, but having to set it up- and photo watermark and editing- need a new program- my old one requires 32 bits and my computer is 64.......  If my hubby was not computer savy, my computer would be in the backyard and I would quit all of this....LOL

 The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of ' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the April Cards at Splitcoaststampers for this challenge.

 The group says closed- but we ARE open to new members!


Thanks for stopping by!

The nice thing about challenges like this, is it forces you to use up your stash. The Groovy Guava looks awesome. I like buttons and have some adorable ones. This card turned out wonderfully for your challenge.
