Orange is a "Happy" color

And the card I wanted to share is very orange and I love it!
 I love playing with inks and watercolor paper for a watercolor look and this one was super easy.  I just spritzed the paper and ran a mini stamp pad down the paper a few times, not filling all of the surface.  I loved the irregular result.  
 It was finished with a simple little white label shape and some Paper Smooches flowers and leaves.  The word "hello" is from Winnie & Walter. 
This goes with the Paper Players challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Such a bright pretty card! I'm not normally a fan of orange, but your treatment of it is superb and the blue is a perfect accent. I just love all the details you have included!! It's wonderful to see you playing along with the Paper Players, thank you!
