Wild Orchid Challenge and LOTV Sneaky Peeky!!
A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and will have a wonderful week. I was busy, busy, busy all weekend but hopefully things will start to settle down...before the snows come anyway...lolol
For this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge we were asked to use BLUE and BROWN on our cards/projects. This was a really fun one for me so please come on over and check out the DT sample cards and decide to join in with us--we would love to see your creations, too!!! In order to be eligible for the wonderful prize(s) always offered at the challenge, please remember to follow these little rules!!!

This is also my first SNEAKY PEEKY of the absolutely adorable images which are going to be available at the LOTV Web Shop on November 10...and Gosh, they are all so precious! You can check out more SNEAKY PEEKS of this Collection over at LOTV Ideas to Inspire!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Bo Bunny Snowfall Collection, and all background panels are machine stitched. I used the sweet little Icy Angel from the new LOTV collection and she was stamped on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Promarkers and FLEXMARKERS and let me tell you I am completely sold on the wonderful brush nib on these new markers. You all know that I love my Copics BUT the brush nibs on these markers are just wonderful....will tell you more about them very soon!!!! I also used alot of Glamour Dust, Stickles, and a touch of WOC's Fine Gold German Glass Glitter before cutting her out with Nesties. For the horizontal I used a wide brown grosgrain topped with light blue striped satin/organza ribbon. The floral treatments are made with Wild Orchid Craft products: Large Curly Wild Rose, Carnations, Aster Daisies, 1" Wild Rose, Tulips, and Decorative Crown Pins all resting on glitter snowflake ornaments. Finally I used Brown Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften the opposite corners. After my card was finished I wished that I had used 100 Grit Brown German Glass Glitter on the brown flowers.....sigh.
For the first panel on the inside I used double glitter snowflake ornaments topped with brown pearls. This sentiment is also included with the Icy Angel stamp...I cut it out with SB Fancy Tag and added a couple more brown pearls. The jotting panel has just a couple of smaller glitter snowflakes with pearls.
I hope you like my creation and will decide to join in with us over at the Wild Orchid Challenge...you will not believe the amazing prize!!!!
Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you will return often! It is always such a joy to see that you have been here. Have a wonderful week...and until the next time I send BIG HUGS!!!
