Tangerine Flower

Second post of the day....

The sketch I used is from this week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge and the colours are from the Colour Throw Down -Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango and Black.

I put the base of the card through the Big Shot with an embossing folder so that it had some texture - I decided I wanted to keep most of it showing. I used the Fifth Avenue Embossing folder on the Teal piece of paper and then gently dragged the stamp pad over the raised sections. The centre of the flower is made of orange microbeads.

I rarely remember to decorate the inside of my cards - but I did today because of the black base.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

I think turquoise is quickly becoming my next favorite color. (It may never replace purple, but it's coming close!) Beautiful card!
