Sunny Days "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

Welcome to the Sunny Days "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" Blog Hop.  I am so glad you stopped by.  If you arrived from Golda's blog wasn't her cards great? If you did then your on the right path if not hop on over to the Lora's blog which is the beginning of the hop so you won't miss any of the fabulous creations all the ladies have done.
The theme of the blog hop is "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Each blog hostess has been assigned a color. At the end of the rainbow is a link to your pot of gold! Be sure to click the link so you can join us in the Card Swaps forum for challenges, games, fun, and prizes!! It's sure to be a lot of fun.
I was assigned the color orange I was really surprised... and to tell you the truth... scared to get the color ORANGE!
I used my nesties and stacked them three high with pop dots but the picture doesn't show this to well...  I stamped the peach and saying in a darker orange so it would show up.  I cute a flower out of Crinoline with the Tim Holtz flower die from Sizzix's, hand died the seam binding and fabric with SU ink.  The borders are EK Sucess and the top one is Spellbinders.  I added a handmade stick pin just for a little more bling.  It's a pretty simple card and I hope you like it!!! 
We aren't doing prizes on the hop, but there will be a spot in the forum where everyone can upload blog hop inspired projects.
Your next stop on the hop is Ana's blog.  Be sure to leave her some love.  She does such a great job on all her projects.
In case you lose your way, here is a full list of blogs on the hop.
