Color Hues #29 - ORANGE & BROWN

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Color Hues Challenge today and they are looking for ORANGE and BROWN on our cards this time around.


I had saw a card by Dana Kirby using colored strips of cardstock that jumpstarted the idea for my card, and I hope I'm not going too rogue for this challenge by using shades of orange and brown, but here's what I came up with...


I started by cutting different widths of Early Espresso, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Really Rust, & Pumpkin Pie cardstocks (ALL SU!), and then mounting them diagonally to my card panel.


I mounted my trimmed panel to a top folding white card base, and then added a die cut my sweet friend Birgit sent me from Die-manites (DRU) called Pumpkin Harvest...doesn't it look wonderful left in white against the colored cardstock strips?!!  For my sentiment I added another die cut from an older PTI set called Counting My Blessings Die Collection and also left it white for a white on white look.  I finished this card with a few crystal gemstones and love how CAS it turned out!

This challenge is open till Nov. 14th, and there are oodles of lovely inspiration from the DT using the ORANGE and BROWN color theme, so check it all out right HERE and then play along!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
