Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF!!!!!

 
 
A very Happy Monday to each of you and I hope for you a wonderful week ahead! I trust that you all had a marvelous weekend and have been able to get in some crafting or other fun adventures!!
 
Today is the first day of the next challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and this one should be loads of fun for everybody since the theme this time is ANYTHING GOES!!!! So just check out the requirements and come on over and show us your Anything Goes creations!!! As always you know there will be a marvelous surprise from the wonderful folks at the Wild Orchid Crafts shop!!!
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is Maja Design. The darling image I have used is Li'l Bell's Snack Time from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by the amazing Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps. The image was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Glossy Accents to the saucer and pitcher, and Stardust Stickles to the lace trim on her dress. Almost all of the embellishments are from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop: Trellis Roses, Aster Daisies, Hip Rosebuds, Decorative Metal Corner, Divine Twine, White Net Lace, Self-Adhesive Pearls, and Heart Shape Flat Back Pearls. In addition I used some organza ribbon tied into a double flat bow to hold a teapot charm similar to the one in the image. The metal corner and the double tags were given a treatment of Frantage.
 
With that, I have some exciting news!!!!
 
Wild Orchid Crafts launched a new website yesterday and there are so many BEAUTIFUL new products as well as the old products we have come to love for our crafting needs. Here is a peek at what you will see on your next visit to the site....I couldn't wait to visit and purchase some of the gorgeous orchids and other crafting items!!!!!
 
 
Check out these gorgeous specimens!!!!!
 
 
And now.....
 
SWEET STUFF!!!
 
 
I have two extra Li'l Bell's Snack Time stamps who are looking for nice homes!!! They will be traveling with a few more little treats to keep them company. So if you would like to be in for the draw on Thursday, just leave a comment. Good Luck!!
 
Thank you all so much for dropping by today and I hope you will join with us at the Wild Orchid Challenge during this fortnight. Until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!!

As always your card is absolutely gorgeous Jacque, and I just love the beautiful soft colors, you´ve used on it too. Really stunning work.
And yes I saw their new site already yesterday and it´s awesome,but unfortunately my finances didn´t allow me to go mad, even I wanted to SIGH, so I´ll just have to wait for better times for that and hope, it´s not all gone then.

Lenoria said...

This card is so sweet and I love this stamp, looks familiar around my house especially since my granddaughter just brought home two kittens she found in a ditch beside the road and she "could not just leave them there to die"! No, I would not have left them either so I am now the owner of two more cats because I can't give them away because she is so attached to them!!
