Dynamic Duo's #58 Monochromatic Deep Oranges Meets En Francais

Hi Stampers!

It's Sunday afternoon and all is quite in the home front-great time to get into the crafting corner. Being that the days are little longer because it is summer, I'll be able to get a little more crafting time this afternoon.

En Francais Meets The Monochromatic Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango!!!! This is Dynamic Duo's #58 color challenge for this week.!

I have to admit that this challenge was a little difficult, but hey-challenges help us grow! (That's what I always tell my children). The hardest part of this weeks challenge was getting the color combination to work. Here is what I came up with using a background stamp and Tile Technique....hope you all like it!
