A Splash of Colour

Personally I associate the colours Orange, Green and Brown with autumn so it was quite odd making a card using this colour combination for this week's challenge on Colour Create Challenges - made doubly difficult by adding the "card for a man" element ...... why are men soooooo difficult to craft for?

Anyway, I decided to go for lots of straight lines, no flounces or flourishes (well apart from my hand drawn ones just visible on the brown cardstock - which was initially cream til I started with my promarkers!) and none of my usual embellishments to make it a more masculine design. I coloured the image using my new found confidence with blending promarker colours and I have to admit I'm pretty pleased with the way it has turned out .....
