This is for Color Challenge CC413 - Lucky Limeade, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White. I created my BG using an clear EP emboss resist - Rusty Hinge Distress Ink over Whisper White CS, and then I ironed off the EP. Lots of orange and white here, and just a touch of green. Yes, check out the twine - it's there! The card base is a retired SU color that my SIL gave me and I don't even know the name of, but I loved it behind the BG.
No combo with orange ever comes easy for me, and this was no exception. But in the end I came up with something I don't mind putting in my stash!
Thanks for looking!

Ah, a faux batik. I shy away from that - sometimes I find the paper I'm using to iron the EP off with just sticks to the paper too much, but I know how lovely it looks after it's done. I think that's my current favourite cover-a-card. But oh, the suggestive power of a name, I don't think I've stamped it in anything other than green yet. I love the look of yours with the white and rusty hinge - it reminds me of some lovely PTI paper somebody once sent me.
