A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #35 and Penny Black Saturday Challenge 33

I thought I'd whip up a quick-make card today whilst combining a couple of challenges. This week's challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'Oh Baby', where we are challenged to create a card for a New Baby, Mum-to-be, New Mum or Pre-schooler. And over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge, week 33's challenge is to feature a frame somewhere on your entry.
I don't own any suitable stamps, but was kindly sent this Penny Black image from a DoCraft buddy, which I thought would be perfect for a pre-schooler. I used my nesties to create a frame (first time!) from the dark orange card, but you can't really see this on the pic (it just looks like the image is matted onto the card - I promise you it's not!).
I also set myself a little challenge of just to use yellow and orange. Now this was quite a feat, as I don't have any papers in those colours apart from the dotty and checked sheets from my new K & Co Hopscotch Boy paper pad. Also, I found it a massive struggle to match some card ... I only have the So Mod and the Nostalgia packs of card from Core'dinations. Can you believe there was no orange in either!?! The orangey coloured card is in fact a pinky brown, but I think it's okay! I've now ordered a load of yellow and orange Doodlebug papers from The GlitterPot, as I love challenging myself with colours. (Pink, brown and green is my fav colour-combo!).
Thanks for reading, peeps! Have a great evening, whatever you are doing...
