Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 11 - Chocolate Orange

Hi everyone, and a card today for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp where this week the challenge is a colour theme of Chocolate and Orange. There's some great inspiration for these colours from the design team so I hope you can join us this week.

I would probably give this card to my maiden aunt if I had one and as I don't it's probably going in the bin!!! So very briefly I used the arum lilies digi image which I coloured with pencils and cut out, it's all layered over coredinations brown card, sanded and inked with distress ink. The paper is MME bloom and grow and I've added some orange voile, a papermania sentiment, flowers and pearls to finish. TFL. Chris x
