A little sympathy card.

Hello Everyone,
I have a little card to show you that is not complex, but it does have some of my favourite elements and techniques. 
The Orange and Green palette- to get this colour scheme right choose a bold shade of only one of the colours and a calmer shade of the other hue. I chose my Green to stand out.

Green and Orange is a palette that I do not normally work with, but I loved the way this turned out.

Have a great day
Smiles:)

I honestly thought you chose the orange to stand out as that is the primary color that I see and I LOVE it. I can see that the green is so prevalent in the background and on the body of the butterfly, but to me it cools the vibrant orange that pulls your eye in. I really love the twine bow at the bottom as it fixes the butterfly to the card. Without it, I think the butterfly almost looks like it would honestly take flight from the card.
It's a gorgeous combination of colors, texture, earthy elements and movement. All the things you love in a card and that I love about your creativity!
Hugs to you Onion,
Quirks :)

Oh My Goodness, What a Beautiful Card!! Love these two colors together. Funny how "Orange", can play along w/ so many colors and look great together. Love it.
