White with one challenge 'Celosia Orange'

Hi all, this month I have attempted the white with one challenge for the first time.
Loved this how its just the one colour and just play around with it.
Trying to find pattern paper with the same tone didn't work for me, so I just hunted through all of my stash finding what I could of other stuff. 
I was also lucky enough to have one of Dlish scraps Monochromes Mini Kits in the orange which suited this piece perfectly.
This is my take on the colour.

I had to mix a few different product of orange together to get the colour I was happy with as I didn't want the background to over power too much. A few different colour orange gelatos in water with just the little drop of Dylusions Tangerine Dream did the trick.

All the embellishments are from Dlish scraps Monochrome Kits.
The flowers I added some Distress Inks Ripe Persimmon just to get it to the tone that I needed.
Also was lucky enough to be able to grab a container of Tinby Designs Metallic Melt Celosia Orange, added to the love heart.

A bit of orange cotton and a splashing of Dylusions to finish it off.

Products Used:
Dlish Scraps Monochromes Mini Kit Orange
Tinby Designs Metallic Melts 
TCW Stencil
Dylusions: Tangerine Orange
Orange Corrugated Paper
Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon
Thanks for taking the time to look.
