WHEW!!! That's a lot of fiskateers!!!! :)

As you might have noticed, everyone is into orange today! It is after all the official colour of the fiskateer world...and we're all into sharing our passion for crafting...so we thought, "Why not combine the two!"

I made this card for the occasion. Orange is usually not one of my stronger colours to work with -- I always find it a challenge to come up with something (I like) when orange is involved. But this card came together nicely! And the more I look at it, the more I like it! :)


Since this is a fiskateer blog hop, I tried using as many fiskar items on my card as possible. I started off with using a new (for me) fiskar border punch along the sides...

Then I dry embossed a little with the fiskar shape boss...

 And finally I punched two daisies with my large fiskar daisy punch, and stacked them up to give a little 3D effect. :)

So there you have the breakdown of my card. :) I love working with fiskar products -- they're awesome!

If you'd like to learn more about us (fiskateers), visit the main website -- http://www.fiskateers.com/. We are a community of crafters, and we love to have other crafters join in the fun! Share you passion for crafting...or get inspired by other crafters. Fiskateers is the one stop to it all!! :)

Now head on over to Lyn's blog to see what she came up with! Thanks for stopping by...have a fiska-fabulous day!!!!!!!! And happy hoppin'.
