Digi Haven DT Card - Black and Orange

We have a new challenge for you at Digi Haven today, this fortnight we have a colour theme of "Black and Orange", so you can go with a Halloween theme if you want, or something different, like me.  For this challenge we're sponsored by Broken Box Stock, who have kindly given the DT some fun images to play with, I chose this sassy lady, who made me think of this sentiment, which is a freebie from Ginger's House.
 The image has been coloured with my usual Promarkers, then matted onto black card.  I didn't want to add too much black to this card, it isn't a Halloween card after all, so I kept it to an accent colour, keeping orange as the main colour.
I covered a card blank with bright orange card, then embossed some lovely, glitter Core'dinations with a Sheena Douglass daisy pattern folder, sanding back to reveal the pattern a bit better, and layered it on top.  The patterned paper is Papermania Capsule Collection, and has been lurking in my stash for ages.
To embellish, I added some pretty orange ribbon, a bow, layered fabric flowers held together with a large brad, orange gems and black pearls.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - #78 - Embossing (I used an embossing folder)
Inky Impressions - #131 - Halloween or Orange and Black
Simon Says Stamp - Halloween or Halloween Colours
Shopping Our Stash - #124 - Halloween or Black and Orange
Eureka Stamps - #62 - Halloween Colours
Pan Pastel - #42 - Autumn Colours

  17. Lovely card and fantastic coloring. I love that you designed "out of the box" and didn't go along with a Halloween theme, it adds to the inspiration and to the challenge. Great job. ♥ Denise
