Orange And Turquois Card

When I saw a color challenge for an orange and turquois card..I figured now thats a strange color combo...but after seeing some samples I actually liked what I saw...Surprise!! Surprise!! for me!!because orange is my least favorite color to scrap with.. good thing I was in the mood to step out of my comfort zone..and away from my usual colors of purple ...and the colors are so summery and cheerful..I stamped the Thank-you with orange ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder..I found some clear embossing powder at a garage sale..and it comes in quite handy when u dont have the right color embossing powder..if I have ink in the color I'm looking for it works perfect!!
I found a bunch of challenges to enter this card into:
Clearly I stamp Thank You
Mark's Finest punch it
Beary Sweet Challenge - Embossing
Pollycraft - bold and bright
By the cute and girly - warm summer days
Critter Sketch Thank You
