Go Your Own Way

A quick card for a not so quick card.  This was one of those ones that was supposed to take 20 minutes and took a lot longer! Anyway, it's for one of the sketches for Hero Arts Contest this month (see below).  I had a tough time find different papers to go together as I was trying to mix collections.  I was successful, there are three different collections on here.  The other challenge as deciding on the ink colour.   The red on the paper is a reddish-orange.  The red I have was too dark.  So I used orange.  What do you think?

ETA - A big congrats to my friend Jocelyn who is a winner at Hero Arts!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a fabulous day.
