Challenge!

MPS has a Challenge going on right now to use the colors Orange, Green, Turquoise, Brown, and a color of your choice (I chose Yellow).  This was such a great color combination that I was immediately inspired to create something!

Here's what I came up with!



Recipe:
A2 sized card.
Orange layer cut at 5.25"x4" and embossed with the Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls folder.  The embossing was inked with orange ink to add some depth.
A Turquoise ribbon was wrapped around the orange layer and tied into a little bow.
Cindy Loo page 71- cut at 4.5"
CI cut this image 4 times.  Green layer-left as is.  Brown- trimmed off the leaves.  Turquoise- trimmed off all but the bird and the frame.  Tahiti DCWV Stack- Trimmed all but the frame.
Added dimension to the cuts by outlining each layer with Le Plume markers and highlighting some of the leaves with Sakura Gelly Roll Pens.
The sentiment is from Studio G and was placed into a flattened bottlecap and flooded with Glossy Accents to give it some shine.

I hope you like my card!  Make sure to check out all of the other talented entries- they're awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!
