PWC326 Orange/Turquoise

It's a colorful challenge at Paper Pretties this week.  PWC326 is "Orange and Turquoise", and if that doesn't scream hot fun in the summertime I don't know what does.  It's the beach - surf and sun or any kind of fun you can imagine.  So break out your favorite coloring medium and get to work on a card or project to enter into this week's challenge and you could win your choice of five digis.  Just remember to link it up on the Paper Pretties challenge blog.  
My card features "Live, Love, Golf" stamp.  I don't play gold but it seems like everyone else I know does so this stamp comes in handy.  The golf course is one place you can get away with wearing any color and pattern combination, in fact this outfit is kind of tame for the golf course but I digress... 

 The image is stamped on Neenah paper and colored with copics but the skirt is pieced with paper to match the papers used on the card.  On the panel behind the stamped image I wrapped bakers twine on the diagonal  to go along with the pattern of the paper.  Let me tell you, this was a a pain in the butt to do and I am not likely to do this again.  If you happen to like the way it looks and want to do it then you should have some scotch tape on hand because when you wrap the twine it does not want to go on the diagonal and in order to get it do this I had to secure it on the backside at every turn. There may be an easier way to do this, maybe running a thin line a quick drying glue where you want the twine to lay will work but I don't know about that since I don't own any of that.  Hanging off the baker's twine there's a golf bag charm which is difficult to see through the watermark but in real life it looks quite cute.  Lastly to punch up the orange aspect I randomly scattered a few Glitter Dots on the card.  

Here the deets:
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Close To My Heart "Ocean"
paper - Neenah Classic Crest Brilliant White card stock; My Favorite Things "Orange Fizz" and "Tangy Orange" card stock; Simple Stories "Snap" patterned papers pad
miscellaneous - copics; Glitter Dots Tropical; Baker's Twine; golf bag charm
