Tropical Chic for a Colour Challenge

Hello!
Apologies for not managing to post on here yesterday. We had a DIY weekend with a million jobs to do and well, I managed to do the important jobs but still not all of them, lol!
Anyway, back to cards today. I made this card as part of a challenge that one of my lovely team mates is organising, inspiring us to use new colours. I also went to town and used lots of new products choosing the Tropical chic bundle, the Bokeh backgrounds stamps and finally the Little Twinkle stamps to make this card...
Now, I usually say I'm not really an orange or yellow kind of person (although I do like a bit of mustard in home decor) but I often find I like the end result when I'm pushed out of my comfort zone ;-)
I used a sponge dauber to add the darker Pumpkin Pie around the Pineapple Punch flowers as well as to parts of the Bokeh background too.
The tiny stars and the sentiment are from the Little Twinkle set.
I like a simple layered card but I don't like to see the "workings" inside (also my prefered style of top folding makes adding ribbon or thread running top to bottom tricky) so...
TIP: I used a layer of thick white card just 2 mm smaller than the card base - 10.3cm x 14.6cm to stamp on before adding to a card base 1(0.5mm x 14.8mm.)
Finally, I finished with a few tiny sequins. I love the Iridescent Sequin Assortment as there is a great selection of sizes in there.
So, are you an orange and yellow kind of person or not so much?
 Either way, I do hope you have enjoyed today's card at least as much as I enjoyed making it :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
