The colour challenge with a leaf or tree

Hello dear friends,
After a rather hectic and a bit stressful week, I am pleased to make it here today with a lovely colour challenge at The Outlawz. One great thing this past week... on Saturday night we had lovely soaking rain for a few hours. Having had no rain since April, this was just wonderful...settled lots of dust and the spring flowers and leaves are just bursting to get out.

This week at The Outlawz Penny has chosen the inspirational photo, colour palette and twist....It is a really lovely one and I do hope that many of you will feel inspired to join in.

Our sponsor  this month is stillBugaboo Stamps and again the DT have used several of their images. We would love you to come and have a look at all the cards for some inspiration.

On to my card:

I used an orange cardstock and onto this I matted an
embossed card. Used a folder from Craft Concepts, have had it for a while, but not used it yet and then shaded the leaves with Pan Pastels.

The image is  Thank you tulip block and can be found  HERE.
I coloured this with Distress inkpads and matted onto green cardstock.

Ribbon, leaf charm..had these for ages,  and pearls to finish.
