Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Orange +

It's Cathy's turn to set the theme for this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and she has chosen:

' one other colour'

Eeek! Orange is not a colour I feel entirely comfortable with...although I have used it a couple of times recently...and it is beginning to grow on me. I've teamed it with turquoise to make a boy's birthday card. The image is 'Birthday Monkeys' (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie), and the DCWV cardstock has been embossed using the 'Swiss Dots', 'Stars' and 'Happy Birthday' Cuttlebug folders, then sanded to reveal the white core.

Really looking forward to seeing what colour combinations you come up with...and don't forget to check out the fabulous cards by the other DT members on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog.

Aw Helen this is so cute. You've done a great job with the orange. I'm not confident with it as a colour either.
Fab card!
