Flowers for you

This card is for the Theme Thursday challenge entitled orange and black. I find I use orange a lot on my cards, even though it's not my favourite colour. I find it scans well, and gives warmth. I've added a touch of green for the foliage - just a hint of contrast.

Gorgeous piece. Fab background colour.
I love to see orange but don't use it a lot myself, I have always shied away from it with being a redhead!!
