Featuring Orchids

Hi everyone. Did you have a nice weekend? We had a great one! Lots of time in the woods letting Riley hunt for mice and squirrel. She did really well in the mouse department! It's so fun to watch her and she never tires of it.

I love the new images that were released at Squigglefly this weekend! So much wonderful new art to help us create our masterpieces! I had a lot of time to play in my craft room yesterday and have enough cards made to share with you throughout the week. Today's card is one I made for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The card I CASED can be seen HERE.

I used the beautiful Orchids from Deena Perreault

I used Copic markers to color and went with sepia tones.  The edges of the image panel were sponged with Creamy Caramel ink.  It's a pretty simple card, but the image is so lovely it doesn't need much.

Speaking of challenges, today Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals are back at the Squigglefly blog with a recipe challenge!  Go see the wonderful samples they've created with the new images - you're sure to be inspired to create something yourself!
