5 a Day

The colours in this card are a little out of my comfort zone. I'm not really an orangey person, and it doesn't appear at all in my palette of colours from 'Colour Me Beautiful' or whatever it is they call themselves these days, so I never wear it.
Anyway, it's for these challenges.
Pink Elephant - Orange
Pile it On - Veggies
Penny's Challenge - Fruit or Veggies
Crafty Angels - Sketch
Totally Papercrafts - Monochromatic
The image is from Cuddly Buddly and I believe that the paper is from Pollycraft. The sentiment is from SU mounted on a Nestie and then a Cuttlebug tag.
The corners were made from a Cuttlebug Vintage square, with the centre cut out with a small square Nestie and then cut diagonally to make the corners. I haven't tried this before but I quite like them. The flowers, brads and ribbons are from Papermania.
