A splash of orange

Going through my stash lately, I re-discovered a couple of unfinished pickpoint patterns I have pricked quite a while ago, using a piece of cardboard that got a little wrinkled in some places. My idea was to make bookmarks, but I never finished them and forgot about the whole thing in the end. Now, I finally took time to start using them up. 
For the first one, I picked a yarn with shades of orange and yellow floating into each other. To cover the stitching on the back side, I used a matching orange cardboard.
