orange and blue…

IMG_0609 copy

cps121This is for the Card Positioning System challenge #121.  I liked the simplicity of this sketch.  Hero Arts is also challenging the use of complimentary colors this week and I decided to give orange and blue a try.  I love this combo, but I usually use it for boy cards.  I thought I would try and make a more feminine card with the color combo.

I used my butterfly punch again and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The embossing powder had a bit of an opaque effect as well which created an interesting result I didn’t expect, but it worked.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
