Orchids Rock

Hello Everyone!  It's Day One of an absolutely awesome Power Poppy Release!!  Just wait until you see all the sets this week!  Today we have one of my favourite florals.....orchids!  These gorgeous flowers love to grow where I live, although the Lady Slipper Orchid I've featured today is actually found across North America, Asia and Europe.  It's also the state flower of Minnesota and official provincial flower of Canada's Prince Edward Island!  Let me introduce you to ORCHIDS ROCK!


I've used a base of Rich Razzleberry layered with some Cottage Wall (ret.) DP and then wrapped a piece of ribbon around the middle. Next I've cut another piece of Rich Razzleberry with the largest die from Spellbinders' Regal Frame dies, attached it as shown and then added a piece of white ribbon over the top.  I've stamped the orchids and sentiment from Orchids Rock in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured them with Copics (G40, G43, G46, G99, RV52, RV63, RV66, RV69, YG11, Y32, C5, B0000).  I've cut this out with the second largest die from the Regal Frame set.  I've really let the orchids do all the talking on this card and finished with a bow and some buttons.

Stamps - Orchids Rock (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Rich Razzleberry, Cottage Wall (Ret.)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Regal Frame, Ribbons, Bow Easy, Buttons, Silver Cord

The Bloom Brigade have some incredible inspiration for you today that you don't want to miss!!  Pop on by and leave a little love!!  :)
That's all from me today, enjoy the hop and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)
