Purple and Green at Wild Orchid Challenge!!!

Happy Monday to everyone!!! I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and are prepared for an even better week!! I am thinking Spring has arrived and I am such a happy camper with that news...daffodils are blooming, I have bought pansies, petunias, and marigolds and I am ready to dig in the dirt!!! Nothing makes me happier!!!

 
Today is the first day of the new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and the theme this time is PURPLE and GREEN!! I don't use purple often so this was a real challenge for me also but a fun one, I might add!!!! I hope you will all come over and join in with us because you know that there will be a wonderful surprise for some lucky participant....and what could be more wonderful than a surprise from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop!!!!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and for the double matting and the DP is from Maja Design. The darling image is a Bildmalarna which was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a bit of Pearl Pen and Prisma Glitter to the centers of the flowers. ALL of the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts. For the side verticals I used a Scalloped Lace topped with Organza Rose Trim. For the floral treatment I used a Curly Wild Rose, Carnations, Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, and Heather.
 
Thank you so very much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon. Some of you have asked why I haven't been posting as much and I can only say that my motivation and creativity have taken an extended vacation to some faraway place!! But I am hoping that it returns soon...smiles!! If you have not tossed your name in for this week's Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF be sure to scroll down and visit the little Blue Froggy in the posting below. Until the next time, I send big hugs!!

This card is gorgeous! I am in the "spring" mood too, I bought tomato plants and flowers yesterday hoping to get them set out today since we are having 76 and up degrees for the next few days until rain again Thursday. I miss your more frequent posts but when you get in your creative mode your creations are gorgeous!

Hi Jacque!

What a beautiful card! I love purple and greens and yellows together...they are our wedding colors. I love the rosettes going down the sides. You colored this darling girl beautifully! The flowers from WOC looks so real, so life like!

I was wondering if no one else has asked for her, would you please let me give her a good home? Thanks for considering this matter!

His,
Traci Starkweather
