Orange you so pretty?

I never used to be one that gravitated towards very 'bright'colours in my crafting, but within the last year or two I have started to change in this regard. I must add though that I still prefer an understated tone palette for my scrapbooks and that the bright colours are mainly linked to card making.

Orange is one of my favourite 'brights'. It always looks like it has smile on it's face and wants to stick it's cheeky tongue out at me. This is probably the only reason why I chose to make this card orange, I wanted needed to use the gorgeously delicious orange ribbon that stuck it's tongue out at me from my ribbon collection....

A lot of scraps were harmed in the making of this card, just saying* A pity I am still left with half a ton of the stuff, at least it makes for a few good ooh's and aah's over full pieces long gone.
