Color Dare #117: Chose your own Orange!

Welcome to the Color My Heart Color Dare! 
This week the challenge is to chose your own orange. Mine is Sunset!

I sponged Sunset ink on white daisy cardstock using a sponge dauber I love sponge daubers! They are easy to use and give a nice soft blend of color. The top is sunset and blends into Whisper at the bottom. I also inked the edge with black ink. The background was embossed with the Quatrefoil folder. I added a couple strips of Black Glitter paper for some sparkle.
