Clearly orange

This afternoon I made my ATCs for the October swap on BF - the theme is 'orange'.

The theme for DCM this week is 'I can see clearly now' - the leaves I used are a bit pearlised, but are acetate, so I think they count for this challenge. I've had a pack of them for ages and can't remember where I got them from, but they seemed just right - altogether I made nine ATCs like this one.

I'm behind with the Crafty Pad challenge 41, but thought I'd still link as this was a recipe calling for 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 brads and a swirl.

The main background paper is BG cupcake mac'n cheese and the bottom right hand corner piece is ambrosia. The Dawn Bibby stamp swirl has been stamped with versamark and clear embossed, although you can't see the shine on here - this fits the Whimsy challenge 24 'emboss-abilities'.

Moving along with the times
17 is to create anything BUT a card - so I thought this ATC is just right.
