I decided to play along with this month's Sketch & Dare Challenge.

I just love this Sketch and Dare was to use the color "orange"!!

Here is the Sketch and Rules to follow along....and here is the details and 
place to link up your projects, here.

the Die~Namites Monthly Challenge!

Entry #1 YOU MUST....use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.
Entry #2 USE the sketch! It can be interpreted (loosely or exactly)
 as a card, layout or altered piece!
Entry #3 INCORPORATE the dare into your creation.

Each participant will receive one entry into our random drawing
for each entry into the challenge.

 You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog,
with mention of the Die~Namites Die used and

"To Be Free" Layout
Here is my take on the sketch & dare challenge....I created a scrapbook layout!
What is awesome is I used scraps of paper I had laying around near my desk...using my stash of flowers, twine and paper doily! Great way to use up your stash/scraps.

I was up to the dare challenge with using the color "Orange" and
let me says it's not that easy. 
I die cut the die out of white paper and using Distress inks colored the 
leaves and flowers on the die cut piece. 
Also I cut out pattern paper in the same shade colors and adhered behind the die cut pieces.

Flowers and Leaves
