Birthday Orchid


Hi, it feels like ages since I've made any cards, hopefully I've knocked this cold on the head and can get back into things.

I was inspired by a few challenges and knew I wanted to use a flower stamp that hadn't been used in ages. I fussy cut vellum flowers to pop on top of the stamped ones for extra dimension.

At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, the theme is botanical.

At Inkspirational the theme is bloom.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's anything goes.

At Addicted to CAS the code word is texture.

At Allsorts Challenge the team is celebrating their 5th birthday with a challenge and a bloghop. The theme is Happy Birthday!

Materials used:
Crafts Too embossing folder; Memory Box orchid stamp;Versafine ink and clear embossing powder; vellum; twinkling H2Os; Memory Box label die; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
