Tangerine Tango

Tangerine Tango!
 Pantone Color of the Year!

Wow! A bright shade of the Orange Family.
Combinding shades with this color intensity can be fun.
I choose bright shades of Fuschia's to mix with bright Orange's.
Gerbera Daisies are beautiful in bright shades!


A special Birthday card for my daughter, Brenda!
Who always brightens my life!


Added a shade of Olive Green to tone the card down a bit.

Another shade I enjoy pairing with Tangerine Tango is Sodalite Blue.
Sodalite Blue is another color featured on the Fashion Color Report Spring 2012!



In honor of my hometown Pro Football team - Denver Broncos!
(Do you think Pantone color experts had any idea?)
