Happy Birthday Wild Orchid Challenge and Birthday SWEET STUFF!!!!!
Happy Monday everyone....I hope you all have had a magnificent weekend and are beginning a lovely week! I am composing on my laptop so if this looks crazy when I post it, please overlook it...lol! The modem on my desktop was hit by lightening (they think) and I won't have a new one until later on Monday! It is amazing how much I depend on a crazy machine....it lets us all keep in touch with the world!! And I feel lost without my desktop....sigh!!!
Today is the next Wild Orchid Challenge and since the challenge is celebrating its one year birthday this month for the next two weeks the requirement is to make a BIRTHDAY CARD and of course to use at least one Wild Orchid Crafts product on your card. You must also use the fun SKETCH by the exquisitely talented DT Dena. You can combine our challenge with no more than 2 other challenges. We would love for you to join in with us for this challenge--as usual, there is a marvelous prize from Wild Orchid Crafts awaiting some lucky participant!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from the Journey Collection by Authentique; and all panels are machine stitched. I used the darling LOTV Rosie With Cake stamped on XPress It Blending Card, colored with Copics, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to the stars. The cake was accented with Liquid Pearls, Stickles, and Silver Spica and her little top was paper-pieced. The sentiment is from the LOTV Set 8 - Happy Circular Sentiments which I double matted with Nesties. For the vertical I used a Lovely Lace from WOC. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm Dove Grey Open Rose, 10mm Dove Grey Open Roses, and Carnations. The front was finished with WOC Self Adhesive Pearls.
The design of the inside replicates the front of the card with the addition of a couple of flat bows, a heart charm, and a jotting spot.
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will drop over to the Wild Orchid Challenge Blog to see the absolutely gorgeous Birthday Cards made by my DT Sisters!!! You will be so happy you did because they are all absolutely gorgeous!
