Black & Orange with MMM

Sorry for the lateness of my post today ....I have been a little poorly.  I cannot believe it is Monday again .... where are the weeks flying off to?  Caz, my fellow DT member of Make My Monday  continues with her Autumn theme - this week we have a colour scheme to play with:-

Orange & Black

Now Caz has said it can be Halloween themed or not - as long as the colours used are Orange & Black.  Now as I do not like Halloween I had to stick with an autumn themed card.
I hope you like my card which has been created using primarily Rusty Hinge distress ink and an old text book.
The tree and sentiment are from a PaperArtsy set; the tree has been embossed.  The leaves have been stamped onto card which has also been coloured with Rusty Hinge.
The chipboard flourish is from Maya Road and has been coloured with various inks and paints (to try and get it right) and then triple embossed, which was then stamped into whilst still wet.

Its not a combination I would usually use and it was quite hard sticking to just the two colours but I quite like the "dramaticness".   Hope you can play along with us this week at Make My Monday.

Hope you're feeling a bit better today Suz and would admire your card but the pic is missing.
I know how gorgeous it is from the one on MMM so wanted to say so here.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Fabulous Suzanne, just love the text and orange background with the stark contrast of the black tree. The border frames the piece beautifully.
Take care, hope you feel much better soon.
luv and hugs {brenda] xoxox

Are you feeling any better, I do hope so. I love your card, there is a lot of work there and so many interesting details. Take care, I'm late in catching up with comments, please forgive me. Caz
