One-Layer Wednesday #58

The office pot luck was today, and it was a great success. If there's something that we do really well at the office, it's throwing a good party with good food. Hummus, fruit, salad, chicken, 2 types of key lime pie (regular and gluten-free), cookies, cinnamon rolls, etc. I baked about 30 peanut butter chocolate chip cookies last night and ate one before bed for quality assurance purposes. I came back home with ZERO! YAY! One of the IT guys happily ate the last 5 cookies. I'm so thankful that I'm not stuck eating them by myself. Whew!

This week's One-Layer Wednesday (#58) focuses on the color scheme: orange, yellow and aqua. I thought this was funny because that's kinda the color scheme that I used on my card yesterday. I wanted to use an American Crafts stamp set and I had my eye on a lotus-like flower, but ended up using a background stamp. I thought it'd be cool to use it as a present and then use other box-y stamps to create a row of gifts. To break up the boxiness, I added a vase with a flower at the end of the row.
