Purple orchid

Three cards in a three days. I'm surprising myself :o) This card game together quite easily, all the thinking and layout was done for me. The card is for my friend who loves orchids. So an obvious choice of the image was orchid. Luckily I knew where to get a digi with it. Beccy's Place of course.
For the layout I used a sketch from Challenge Up Your Life - Challenge 74. All I had to too was to choose the papers, color the image and clue it all together :o)

Papers are from Cupcake Cards & Crafts Shabby Beautiful collection. I won those from MAWTT challenge). I inked the edges with Dovecraft Purple Berry pigment ink. Image is colored with ProMarkers. Center of flowers are colored with atYouSpica glitter markers and I also added some Diamond Stickles by Ranger to the orchid.


Sentiment is computer generated. Ribbon is from my stash and white pearls (yes, they are actually white) are from Queen & Co.
I'm sorry that the pictures are so dark. It was really late then I finished it.

Here it was, my simple card. It was also my last card of this week. See you on Monday :o)
