MDUC colour challenge/story card

Hi everone,
This week over at Magnolia Downunder Challenges we have
a colour challenge. Use Orange, Pink, Green, Brown and
Blue. I must admit, I my first reaction was one of panic at
the thought of using so many colours together, but then I sat
and thought about it and went through my paper stash to help
me get started. I used the brown and green with a bit of blue
as my main colours and have added small amounts of pink and
orange and this is what I have come up with this week...

I thought I could use this as an Engagement card, and create
a 'Happily Ever After' theme.
Here is a close up of the front...

...the middle section...

The bird and braches were puched using a Stampin up punch,
I'm not sure what it is called, but it is one of the new ones.
Thanks Lianne for lending me that one :oD
Here is the final piece...
Stamps        Magnolia Fairytale - Tilda with apple, Mini Tilda, Sherwood
                     Edwin, Butterfly, Dragonfly.
                     Magnolia wedding collection - Loving couple
                     Other - SU Forest Friends, castle.
Other         Once upon a time DSP, Cardstock - brown, orange, green, blue.
                    musical notes sticker, stickles,

Thanks for stopping by :oD
