Peahes and Cream

Happy Sunday! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

This is the second card that I made for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge as a guest DT. And after just visiting their blog to see the posting, I realize that I goofed on this one. Ooooops, sorry, Kellie. How embarrasing is this!

The current challenge is a colour challenge, with a choice. You can do either…
Pink, Brown and Cream/White
Orange, Brown and Cream/White
Blue, Brown and Cream/White.

Well, as it turns out, I completely missed the brown part. I thought I would choose the colour combination that I haven't use before, which I thought would be orange and cream, just those 2 colours. Soooooo.... I don't have any brown at all on my card. I was even trying to keep it strictly in orange and cream, but I broke down at the last minute and added a bit of green. Maybe we can pretend the green is brown instead--LOL. Oh well, here's my card anyway.

I've used a vintage Tilda here, the Cross Stitch Tilda. I was able to find one DP with the right shade of orange that I wanted to use, but couldn't find another one. So I stamped my own DP as I do have a stamp ink pad with just that shade of orange to match. I used this for the 3 horizontal strips on the card. The colours of the card looks like orange and white in the pictures, but the white is really cream colour in real life.

Here's how I decorated the inside of the card.

Despite the goof-up, hope you like the card anyway. Thanks for dropping by.
Don't forget to visit the MDUC blog and see the fabulous cards from the DT members there.

Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful.

I didn't even notice I was too in awe over your amazing work! So who cares really and I must be going colour blind as I thought the hair was a dark brown when I first 'stared' at it, I see now it's not but meh it's a gorgeous, GORGEOUS card! I love it!

I'm with Kellie - I too was sooo in awe I hadn't noticed there was no brown!! You've done sooo well just keeping it to orange and cream - that would have been tough, the green is a nice little touch!!! Personally I think the dark orange is sort of a light sepia brown in colour and therefore no goof was made - LOL.
Anyhow - with work this gorgeous I'm just pleased to have such great eye candy to look at!

Who needs brown, your card is perfect the way it is. I have been trying to think of a title for when I put it in the Tilda Gallery...Mustard Moon keeps coming back to me but I am not sure it fits. Do you have any idea what you would like to call it? SIMPLY GORGEOUS!!! You always have a knack at the perfect balance.

hugs,
Diana
