Ha ha, I too remember when the orange was all the rave as my Mum had it everywhere. This is a great card and you have done an amazing job. Thanks for playing with MDUC, Hugs xxxx

You did a beautiful job with this card, even not liking orange. The aqua cools it down and provides beautiful contrast. Wonderful job. I love the challenge sketch too.

Sue said...

OMG, my Mom liked to use orange back then too in decorating and I still don't like it to this day!!!!
But, that said, you pulled it off wonderfully on your card. Such a bright happy fun card. Tilda is adorable and your embellishments are perfect. Thanks for sharing your card with us at MDUC.

Oh wow! This is stunning, beautiful beyond words, I love love love it :) I know the orange kitchens you were talking about, horrible! I had a friend who's now wife said he could pick the colours for their wedding and he chose 70's laminate kitchen bench orange!! Needless to say that did not happen, lol, men!
Thanks for playing along with us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges!

Wow I can't believe how you put all those colors together from your dp at the bottom and your flowers. I could NOT do that. I have trouble with bright colors. Very nice card!
