Wild Orchid Challenge

The challenge this time on Wild Orchid Challenge is Love is.  I struggled with this card, my heart just was not in card making as I was so worried about Amy. I just can’t decide what went wrong and had no time to make another card.  Hope you will check out the challenge blog, the DT’s creations are  simply stunning.

I decided to ink up one of the new Sarah Kay stamps that Stampavie are releasing at the CHA.  I am not sure of the name of the stamp yet.  I just love how she is gazing at her puddy tat, so sweet.  The paper is Bo Bunny Love Bandit, the border and doily are both new in stock My Favourite Things Die-namics dies, aren’t they gorgeous!

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts natch – I used trellis rose, poppies and 15mm roses

The sentiment is an Autumn Leaves ticket stamp and the Sheer Ruffle Edge ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

I have some Lili of the Valley candy to give away this week, and very yummy it is too so keep your eyes peeled girls.

  21. I hope all is well with Amy, I lit a special novena candle for her on Friday when I came home from work. It stays lit for 4-5 days and you say a prayer each and every day it stays lit. I truly believe in the power of prayer no matter what your beliefs.

    Now onto your card, another beautiful creation by the magnificent Bev

    Hugs
