Well a play with the word "orange" - thought I'd get your attention...IT'S A REVERSE EXPLOSION CARD!!!  Today Squigglefly's challenge is a super easy and very appropriate for this time of year challenge. SFC4013 From Holley's Hobbyists is appropriate.  With Fall and Halloween, orange is a very popular color about now. Make an orange colored card any theme you want as long as orange is there.  You may enter any card or project. 

  I colored my image with copics and multiple layering along with some stickles of course!

NOW HERE'S THE TRUTH:  I have not tried a reverse explosion card in many years - mainly because of all the fussing and marking and folding.  But now my card making is taking a new leap upwards!  I am using a unique pre-scored and Reverse Explosion cut card blank from The Paper Cut!

I used Basic dark orange, Buff manila file cs, and Green manila file cs for the layering and the background of the actual explosion card is a wonderful color called ORANGE FIZZ...all from The Paper Cut!  And I am very pleased with the final product!

This was unique for me in that there was a fold and embellish diagram included in the package of card blanks.  It tells where the Mountain/Valley folds are and how to fold, as well as the measurement in each section helped my cut my designer paper.  I then folded 6 pieces of orange ribbon to accent the image, and popdotted the image up and off everything.

We are welcoming TWO new artists in October to our Squigglefly Artist Gallery - a husband and wife team - Carmen and Graham Gamble.  Come on over and check out their images as well and then participate in our challenge!
