Vera *Day 4*

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good week- it's almost Friday!!! Here is our next truly amazing card by Vera:I love her vibrant orange and yellow colors! Don't all of Vera's cards just shine?! The texture on the sentiment proves to be a unique touch while the plaid on the apron is another fab texture. Finally, Vera's creativity really shows on this card design with the apron and cooking gear hanging from the brads.
Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Vera's warm orange and yellow colors:


Thanks for stopping by!! Hugs!

Definitely love the warmth of glowing oranges! That was my newest favorite color at the beginning of this year!! Love the contrast of your darker yellow and oranges against the lighter color of the leaves and the sentiment, so beautiful!
