Just Add Ink #143

This week at Just Add Ink it's a colour challenge. 

Now when I first saw these colours together I thought "Ummmmm oookaaaayy" and had absolutely no idea how to balance them and create a card in a style I'm comfortable with.  Then I thought "Hang on- isn't the whole point of these challenges to get me OUT of my comfort zone?"  Anyway, once I started to flip through my stamp sets and think about who I could make a card for, I quickly decided to do a masculine Birthday card.

I'm still not sure about the finished card- I think if I was to get a do-over, I would use the same design but use the colours differently, and also replace the orange and white baker's twine with a button in that space next to the sentiment.
