Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!! NEWS!!! SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you have had a delightful weekend and are looking forward to a marvelous week!
Today is the very first challenge for the New Year at Wild Orchid Challenge Blog and we were treated to a really fun and exciting sketch by the inimitable and magnificently talented and creative Bev Rochester of All The Things I Love. Thanks so much, Bev, for the fun!! We would love for you to come join in with us for this challenge using the sketch. A fabulous prize, as always, is being offered by Wild Orchid Crafts.
...Oh my goodness...check out these new products available at Wild Orchid Crafts now!!! The Hip Rosebuds are so beautiful....and check out those marvelous Self Adhesive Rhinestones!!! Woooohooooo!!!!!
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is all PTI, and the DP is from the MME Tickled Pink Collection. Oh I love those cheerful colors!!! All major panels were machine stitched. The image and sentiment are from the Lili of the Valley Set 3-Occasions stamp sheet. The image was colored with Copics and Glossy accents were added to the little bottle and the medicine in the spoon. Aw, isn't that little bear the cutest little thing???? For the vertical I used a light blue grosgrain ribbon and topped it with PTI Hibiscus Burst Satin ribbon, adding a flat bow to the bottom. For the floral treatment I used all flowers and pins from Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm Open Roses, Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers, Gypsophilia, and Pearl Heart Shaped Pins. To complete the front I used Pink Rhinestones to soften the corners. The image panel and the sentiment panel were both propped up for dimension.
For the inside I used the same papers and same ribbon treatment as on the front...adding a sun charm dangle and triple Nesties for the jotting spot.
