Non-Traditional Wedding Colours

A lovely woman at work approached me to make a wedding card. A simple request on face value but then the requirements of colour came into play - Tangerine, Chocolate and Gold not necessary in that order. My initial thoughts where yuck and yuck and yuck some more!!

So I went through my stash to find appropriate papers and then found myself at Lincraft buying a very expensive paper pad which I don't see myself using again in any great hurry. Anyway I finished the card and was happy with the result (maybe just happy that I got a finished card in the end with very non-traditional Wedding colours!!)
