Here is my ORANGE & BROWN project:

I made this A2 size birthday card for a friend whose birthday is, coincidentally, on November 16th!  I used Chocolate cardstock for the base of my card - it was cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I scored it at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  The front panels were cut from Autumn Terracotta cardstock and run through my Sizzix Texture Boutique with the Number Collage Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.  I then edged them with Autumn Terracotta ink.

The front sentiment and numbers come from our November Stamp of the Month - Capture the Date.  I cute the mats for the sentiment using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge.  This stamp set coordinates with the Artiste, so I didn't have to hand cut it -- just love that!  The shape can be cut from page 47, 3D Object, < u > cut at 2 1/2", 2 3/4", and 3".

The sentiments "yay" and "Happy Birthday" come from our For Every Occasion stamp set.  I just love this stamp set because of how versatile it is.
