Wild Orchid Challenge, WINNER, and NEWS!!!



Happy Monday evening!! I hope you all had a marvelous holiday and are beginning a splendid week! I am finally able to make this posting...sorry I am a bit late but computers sometimes just do not cooperate...sigh!!!

This week the Wild Orchid Challenge is White + 2 colours with a Twist – please use/feature roses on your project either as an embellishment or on the papers/image. We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with. All entries must have at least one WOC product on it and you can combine our challenge with no more than 2 other challenges. So come on over to the challenge blog and join in with us for your chance at a marvelous prize from the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts.

For my DT Sample Card, I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is by Colorbok. All background panels are machine stitched. The darling little hÄnglar & stÄnglar girl, from the Sailor Kids collection, was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. Her clothing, shoes and hairbows are paper-pieced with MM Pink Dots. She was then cut out with triple Nesties. For the horizontal I used a pink double-faced satin ribbon tied into a bow and topped with an organza butterfly by CreaMotion. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Gardenia Stem Flowers, Hybrid Tea Roses, and Long Stem Stamens. WOC Pearls soften the corners.



For the first panel on the inside I used the same ribbon, another organza butterfly and some GORGEOUS Guipure Lace from WOC. For the jotting panel I used the lattice circle diecut trimmed with more WOC Pearls.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join with us over at the Wild Orchid Challenge.

Jacque,
Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I love starting my mornings on your page. :) I was reading through the entire post and saw Lisa M and said, "Oh that's so cool" and then kept reading and then said, "wait a minute...that's ME!!" I don't think I've ever jumped that high from a seated position before. Thank you SO SO very much! Hugs to you and this wonderful group of crafters. :)
