Guest Designing for IBSIC # 51! :)

Hi friends,
The card I am sharing today was made for my GD post at Inspired by Stamping inspiration Challenge # 51....So here's a look at my card first :-

And another view :-

My card is based on the color inspiration provided by the IBS ...Which is White,Orange and Green ...Here's a look at the color palette :


These colors are so vibrant and of course co -incidentally also the colors of our Indian national flag  :)...It was tough to use to use these colors but with a little hard work and with the help of lot of dies...LOL! ...This is what I have created :) ...The orange rose is handmade using the Layered rose die from MFT ...I am so in love with it !! ...The rest of leaves and foliage is all from Cheery-Lynn ...Even the banner on which I have stamped the sentiment is made from Cheery Lynn Lace Deco F corners by doing some clever cutting & sticking it on the sides of the small strip of white cardstock ...And I have covered a strip of white cardstock with Washi Tape and cut it out using a decorative scissors to create the scallop border in the bottom half of my card ...I love using washi tapes they are so versatile !!..So that's about all the info about my card !!
