Hi everyone,

A lot of you will know that I just do not like the colour Orange, a colour I just really hate.   So, when I saw the Challenge theme at Cheery Lyn entitled 'Orange and Black' I groaned and thought 'Well I will give this one a miss for sure'But you know, somehow, Mo's lovely Digi image just seemed to be winking to me and beckoning 'come on you know you want to!' So anyhow, here it is finished and all that went before is history!  And guess what?  I really enjoyed doing it.  Sometimes it is good to step out of our comfort zone.  I think it has quite an Autumny feel to it somehow, perhaps it is the colours.

Die-cuts:  Cheery Lyn doilies and branches, Magnolia Tag
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Mo's Digital Pencil Digi stamp coloured with Promarkers
Prima Papers
Lace, ribbon Glossy Accents and Stickles purchased locally

  20. LOL You hate orange?! Hate is a strong word, but yeah I agree, it ain't my favourite colour either. Nevermind; for being a hater of orange you did a fab job, I think you used just the right amount of it and you placed the orange flowers very well so that all the focus is on the image.
    Very sweet image and card!
