An Apple a Day at Wild Orchid Challenge...WINNER...SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope you have all had a magnificent weekend and are ready for a splendid week!!! I am seeing progress in my renovation of the bathroom so I am happy...but tomorrow is our Labor Day holiday so I won't see more progress until Tuesday...sigh.... I have the new potty as a fixture in my living room...eeeeeekkkkk!!! I would have given you a picture, but it makes me close my eyes every time I walk through the living room...hahhahaha...it certainly gives new meaning to a throne in the living room!!!!! LOL
For this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge we have been given the idea of LAYER IT UP with at least 3 layers....of course I don't know what constitutes a layer soooooo...when I look at my card I see a base, 3 layers of DP with double matting, 2 layers of lace, and an image...and when I count all layers I get 15 layers...so hopefully I qualify!!!! You know that there is always a wonderful surprise from WOC for some lucky participant so I know you will want to come on over and join in with us this time!!!!
For my card I used the darling Elisabeth Bell image for Whimsy Stamps APPLE BLOSSOM which was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Flexmarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter to her skirt and butterfly and Glossy Accents to the apples. The base of the card is Bazzill, the double matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Creamotion Paperblock Victorian Romance "Mixed/Blues", which are my very favorites of all time!!! For each vertical I added a touch of LACE TRIMMING. I also added some Decorative Metal Corners to the image panel, a Red Organza Ribbon double bow to the top to dangle an apple charm from Silver Cord. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: WILD ROSES, SWEETHEART BLOSSOMS, and ROSE LEAVES as well as couple of PEARL HEART PINS
I also made a couple of muslin gift bags which were provided by State Line Bag Company and were so much fun to decorate to match the card. I have to tell you that fabric does NOT photograph like paper so these look a bit fuzzy...BUT I can assure you that in real life, they are just as clear as the paper...sorry!!! But they are kinda cute!!!!
I just added some matching gingham ribbon and some heart buttons tied with DIVINE TWINE and some repetitive WOC flowers.
