O is for Orange

Orange can be a tricky color, but if you pick the right coordinating colors, it is absolutely splendid! Unless it's Halloween, I highly recommend NOT using purple or green (unless it's a very small amount.) Try orange with neutrals. They make it pop & tone it down. I used white & silver with orange for a clean look that isn't obnoxious.

My micro clothes pins are not just for banners or gift wrap. Use them on cards for a fun 3D element that everyone will enjoy.

This card was submitted to these wonderful challenge blogs - See below for the link & details, so you can join in the fun & share your own creation:

It will be available in my shop (click here) if you'd like to give this to someone special :)

Thank you, ladies!

I LOVE orange. It's not used enough, I think. It's such a happy color & if used correctly, it won't remind one of Halloween. Everyone should give it a try!
