Orange Flowers

Really wet in Melbourne today. We have a public holiday in remembrance for the ANZAC soldiers. Good to be at home today. I have been deliberating for a while about making a window card for A Blog Named Hero, and I finally came upon a sketch which would be perfect for this challenge. I also used the colours of the Runway Inspired challenge! This week's Simon Says Stamp challenge is 'Anything Goes' - a perfect card to add to another challenge!
I decided to go for an all white background on a bright orange card. My first card did not quite work out as it was more yellow than bright orange. I re-did it last night using Distress Ink Ripe Persimon and it was the perfect colour to match the challenge. The grey chevron patterned paper was from the Simon Says Stamp April kit and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
