Wild Orchid Challenge

I have bought quite a few products from Wild Orchid Crafts recently - I love their mulberry paper flowers and they also do vintage seam binding which distresses and colours brilliantly.

Last night I came across the Wild Orchid Challenge blog and decided to make a card following this lovely sketch by Bev Rochester.

Here is my take on the sketch.

Weirdly, I had just finished a card very similar to this but without the ribbon and with the image on a circular mat.

The design papers are all Artylicious from the Essence of Nature CD - I absolutely love this CD - it has papers for so many occasions. The plain papers are from my stash.

The image is Marianne design coloured with pro markers and the lace border is done with a Marianne creatables die.

The flowers are of course from Wild Orchid and the rosebuds are from their new range. I coloured them with a tea green pro marker.

I'm off over to the challenge blog now to post my entry.

One word of advice though, be patient waiting for the page to load since there are so many entries it takes forever on my laptop.
