FMS185 and LIM222

It's funny how sometimes an idea just comes to you and you just have to work on it. Really, I should be tucked up in bed fast asleep but I had to get this card done first.... and then I saw that I only have ten hours until the challenge at Less is More finishes. So I really had to stay up to get it done then!

This card is based around the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
And also the challenge at Less is More, to use colours from the opposite sides of the colour wheel, in this case I've chosen blue and orange. Ideally, I'd have waited until morning and taken a photo in natural light ,,, but only ten hours (or nine and some minutes) to go to closing... so here it is.

Card: Whisper White, Tangelo Twist, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Black
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Make A Wish, Winnie and Walter Big, Bold and Party
Ink: Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Marina Mist
Dies: MFT Happy Birthday, Couture Classic Chevrons, Clearly Besotted Make a Wish
Other: SU Square Lattice embossing folder, dimensionals
