Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - 10 November 2011 - Use orange

Time for another challenge over at the Crafty Purple Frog Challenge.  The topic this fortnight is "use orange".
I have to admit I was pretty stumped when I saw the challenge "use orange" but you'll have a good laugh as I am posting two Design Team cards portraying orange today.  It's a colour I don't use very much but I must use it more.  For my card I have used the Crafty Purple Frog pyromage image called "Autumn Breeze".  She is so gorgeous.  I have used some Dovecrafts Sugar and Spice papers along with various orange scraps I had.  A piece of DCWV card I embossed and then sanded back to reveal the white core.  I made up the pyromage and then used some green Stickles around the outside of the image for some sparkle.  the card is finished off with some X-cut punched leaves, Tim Holtz Tattered Floral flower, an orange flower from my stash (I have about two of these left but can't remember where I got them from so I'm not very happy), lace, Craftwork Cards sentiment, die-cut butterflies and some acrylic paint dabbed into the centre of the flowers.
