Pollycraft Monday Challenge No. 13

You'll never guess what the theme over at Pollycraft's Challenge was this week - Orange I hear you say? How did you guess! LOL

I love orange & really enjoyed making this card, it's so bright & zingy.

I've used a Pollycraft digi-stamp, this is from the set "Penelope in the Garden" and she's now a gorgeous auburn Penelope! I've coloured her with SU markers in Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa and Garden Green and some Cameo Coral for the dragonfly. Her hair has been done with a Sakura glaze pen for a bit of shine and I've used a Sakura clear Stardust pen to give the dragonfly wings and the flower centres a bit of sparkle.

The sentiment is also from an SU set - Cheer & Wishes and the backing papers are from my stash.

The cardstock is a graduated orange colour which is why it's dark orange on one side only, the lighter side is a very pale orange, which isn't so clear in the picture.

I've also added a couple of orange eyelets, just in case the card wasn't quite orangey enough!
