Orange is really not one of my favorite colors but it is rather striking with the gray. I embossed the trees and the word "smile" with some silver and added some silver buttons that I found in my bunch of old button container. The most interesting thing was the round blossom popped up image. I found that orange flower and wanted to use it somehow. It took some experimenting but I do like how it turned out. Here is a close up of the layers.

The designer paper is from Basic Grey - called Ambrosia.

Thanks for looking and for the comments!

Your card is lovely! The orange is not "in your face" orange and is very pretty with the grey!
