Monochromatic for Colour Me...!

Hello friends! 

It's time for another challenge at Colour Me...! and this time we are going Monochromatic with Tangelo Twist also known as Orange :)

I decided to go very simple with my card this time around and not overthink it.

I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 side folding card. Then I cut a piece of Tangelo Twist card stock from Stampin Up to fit the front of card base. Next I die cut the word hugs from a new Lawn Fawn word die about 5 times and glued them together on top of each other to give it some added dimension. 

For the bottom of the card I used the Dotted Borders Die from Avery Elle to decorate it up a little and to show a little bit of white on the card. Next I took some white thread and just allowed it to fall on the card in a circular motion. I adhered the hugs die on top of the thread with glue. I sprinkled some Tangerine sequins from Pretty Pink Posh around the card. 

Last but certainly not least, I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen on top of the word die to give it some sparkle and shine. When I make something this simple I have to simply walk away from it or I want to add more and more. I ended up rounding the corner after a few minutes just because I couldn't help myself.
