Good morning! With spring finally in the air here, how appropriate to find these new colors this week for our color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary:

Please be patient with me on some of my photo's. I purchased a light box and am experimenting with it. My background is supposed to be white but looks blue in this photo:

Do you like my orange rhinestones? I colored them with an orange Permanent marker. This colors the rhinestones so nice and doesn't wipe off. I usually let them dry for about a minute before I handle them. I sponged my Whisper White Cardstock piece by adding Tangerine Tango on one half of the card diagonally and then adding Daffodil Delight on the opposite end. If you start in the corner and work your way up, the sponging lightens up. I kept adding ink from the corner and upwards to achieve the dark to light shades:
