Simply orange and brown

A simple card using an orange card blank run through an embossing folder and swiped with brown corduroy distress ink, which I also used on the top flower. The sentiment was stamped with memento rich cocoa. Flowers are prima.

The use of orange inspired by Crazy 4 challenges 185:

Great idea to brush the distress ink over the orange card stock, it looks fab. Thanks for joining us at ATSM.

Beautiful card Hazel. Love the pretty embossing and staining it with a little ink sure makes it stand out. Looks fantastic.

The distressed colour over the embossing looks great...I must remember to try slanting my sentiments too as I always manage to stamp them crooked. This technique may solve that problem for me!
