pot o' Orchids....

Good Tuesday to all....
Here I have made another Mother's Day card with lots of glitter added. I bought this stamp called pot o' Orchids for Lulu at Stamping Bella a couple of weeks ago and wanted to make a card using it for Mother's Day. Sir Stamp Alot has a challenge this week " Butterflies and Blossoms" so I think I am going to put this card in their challenge!



My inspiration for this card came from a pot of Orchids I bought yesterday at the grocery store for my Mother-In-Law! I took a picture of the blooms for you so you could see how pretty they are!All week I have been trying to finish up my recipe book, so I made another recipe card inspired by my card...I just stamped the image right onto the card and coloured away with prismas pencils and added lots of glitter of course!

Have a wonderful day, and thank-you for taking the time out of your day to visit!

  5. Hi Christine

    Wow ! This is just lovely, so very elegant and beautifully laid out and you have cartured the delicate colouring of the orchids wonderfully.

    Orchids are one of my favoutire flowers and we have several in the house. Not sure if they are expensive in the US, they are so quite here, but last so long they are good value.

    Thank you for joining us at Stampalot challenge this month and good luck.
