Seize The Birthday - Monochromatic Orange


Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday.  This time our optional topping is Monochromatic Orange.  This theme would be great for pumpkins and autumn leaves, but I went for golden sunshine glinting off palm fronds.  See it?  See all the pollen floating round in the air ;)

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for more orange inspiration.  If you don't fancy orange, you can still play along, as long as it's a birthday themed project.



I'm entering my card into AAA Cards - Play With Watercolours (I love playing with watercolours!)
