Makeesha's Colour Challenge #6


My friends will tell you that I have a very hard time putting these colours together! Pink and orange together?? Uggggh! But I was determined to do this challenge - after all it is not called a challenge for nothing.
Thank you Keesh for the challenge but this is not a very spectacular card cos of my hang up with those colours. I decided to keep it simple and use more pink than orange. You cant see it but I have stamped the background with the SU Linen background stamp and there is a score line above the Pumpkin Pie DSP. I have just punched out circles and covered them with Crystal Effects for the "dewdrops".
Only two more days and we can order from the new SU catalogue - I bet there will be a rush of orders for a while! I must wear down my long list somewhat I think but I have to have those new punches, papers, felt flowers, ribbon - yikes it never ends.

I saw this color combo and didn't even look twice at it. I couldn't imagine putting pink and orange together myself. But you really made it work with this card.
