Wild Orchid Craft News
Oh my goodness, wait till you see these!! Wild Orchid Crafts is now stocking small flat gardenias, they go on sale today. I do love the big ones but I think these smaller ones are just the business lol. They measure just over an inch in diameter so work really well with the other WOC flowers.
I meant to get this card up early this morning, but I decided to sit with Mum and watch the Remembrance Day Service and Parade, her time serving in the Womans Royal Army Corp (or ATS as it was then) during WW11 is one if the few things she remembers with great accuracy, pride and joy and to see the look on her face as she watches the Cenotaph Parade gives me lots of pleasure. Until 6 years ago Mum and her friends matched past every year.
Quixotic Paperie had the lovely new Elizabeth Bell Snowbabies stamps available to pre-order so couldn’t resist, when they arrived yesterday I had to ink this little darling up. I have used one of the New Wild Orchid Crafts Craft Small Gardenias on here, I am loving them, instead of leaves I thought I would put a couple of punched and glittered snowflakes behind the Gardenia .
The paper is by Magnolia and is from Crafts U Love, the Pink and Aqua on this paper is so good to work with and is one of my fav colour schemes at the moment. The Snowflake border is a Martha Stewart Punch and the Ribbons are from The Hobby House.
I am entering this card for the Friday Sketchers Challenge, I loved this sketch thanks gorls XXX
I have used Copics to colour the image:
