Wild Orchid Challenge


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a splendid weekend and are looking forward to a great week!

Today begins the next challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge where the theme is LOVE IS..., so this could be something for a loved one, your sweetheart, a friend, something you love etc.

You don’t have to use Wild Orchid Crafts products to enter, but if you do that would be wonderful. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as you follow the theme for this challenge and you link back to Wild Orchid Challenge blog you will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize. NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. The cut-off time is Sunday, February 13 at 8PM UK time. So come on over and have a peek at the lovely DT samples and join in with us!! We would love to have you!!

For my project I simply decorated a purse shaped picture frame to match a card I had already made. All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and include: 25mm Open Roses, 20mm Open Roses, 15mm Open Roses, 10mm Open Roses, and 5mm Closed Rosebuds, all in a velvety RED! I also used a Pearl Heart Shaped Pin, and a small red satin bow. I also added a few pearls and rhinestones to the base. For the Spellbinders Labels 4 window I used the sentiment "I treasure your friendship" from Stempelglede, adding more pearls to the flourish.

I hope you like my little simple creation and will decide to show us your LOVE IS project over at Wild Orchid Challenge where there is another wonderful prize from WOC!!!!

I will be back tomorrow with another challenge from RRR and WOC! I will anounce the winner of the PINK desk basket and I will also have another little desk basket ensemble as SWEET STUFF but this time in BLUE so I hope you will come check it out!!! Until then, have a beautiful day! Sending hugs your way!!!

Most splended handbag card I've ever seen. Have decided to look at pretty things this afternoon as I'm feeling rejected. Been turned down as a mag craft tester again and all I hear on the job front is no too, as usual for the past 10 years. Sigh. Sorry, just want to vent my feelings.

Oh Jacque~

You are so adorable, Sweetie! And, humble, too! You said that you "simply decorated"... I would love to see what a "complicated" decoration would be.

This purse shaped frame is stunning! The use of all of those roses are beautiful...and I really like the use of the pearls. I always love pearls. This is so very elegant.

Have a wonderful and blessed evening!

He IS Able,
