Mini Challenge

I created this card for the mini challenge over at Use Your Stash. The challenge was to use yellow and orange on a layout, card or project. Sounds easy enough, right? NOT! I started out by stamping my image and heat embossing it in white and for some reason, the colors green and pink kept sneaking their way on to my card. I was finally able to add just a touch of yellow at the end by adding ribbon to my card. Hope you like.
The details on this card are a little blurry. I do know that the orange and pink cardstock are Stampin' Up as well as the little hello stamp. The flower stamp is a Penny Black stamp and the rest is paper that I've had for ages - the green polka dot paper came in one of those big slabs of paper that you never seem to run out of, hee hee. The striped paper was a free gift for some magazine subscription - which I threw out but kept the paper and the ribbon I've been hoarding forever.

This card is great! I love the white embossing on the orange cardstock. Gave me a new color to put in my head for future reference. Thanks so much. Nice job
