A colour challenge for you at MDUC

>Hello everyone, this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we have a colour challenge for you, and it's a tricky one!! We would like you to use Orange, Pink, Green, Brown and Blue on your creation. I must admit this challenge terrified me when I first saw it, I thought there was no way I was going to be able to make those colours work together, but then I thought of this gorgeous (I totally love it) October Afternoon fly a kite paper and when I checked it did indeed contain all the required colours, and so my card kinda flowed from there.

I used this Tilda from the yummy for your tummy collection firstly because she is super cute and secondly I thought she would go nicely with the papers, sort of a grandma's kitchen feel to it (probably because these papers make me thing of a quilt).
Here is the front of the card (yep, I have used the MS butterfly punch again!)

And here it is opened up, I had so much fun making the last one (after previous disasters) I did it again, I think they are called zig zag cards, let me know if there is another name, I think I may have seen them called something else but I can't for the life of me remember, maybe a tri-fold, or something like that!)
I left off any sentiments because I don't know what this card is for yet :)

Here is a close up of that cutie Tilda And one of Pasta Edwin, also from the yummy for your tummy collection
I could not resist pulling out these cute little stamps and having a play, it has been a while since they saw ink. Unfortunately with so many wonderful new releases the older stamps sometimes get a bit neglected :)

I am going to pop this into a couple of challenges:

7 kids college fund challenge blog - strip it down (o more than 2 layers of DP)

Pile it on - Get into shapes

Stampin for the weekend - Anying goes

Wild orchid crafts - One for the girls

All that scraps Magnolia Challenge - Anything goes

Now don't forget to pop on over HERE... and see the DT wonderful creations for some more inspiration, they have created some amazing and all very different cards using the same colour combo!
