Orchid Thoughts



You can tell a day that Carter naps well, because I not only get to create a card, but I get to blog about it, too! He is due to wake up any minute, so this will be quick. This card is for the SCS Color Challenge and also for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch. I love these colors together and got to play with my new Extra Large Flower Punch from SU! I embossed the Razzleberry and Vanilla panels, and the large layer of the flower with the Swirl folder and the Cuttlebug. The leaves are actually cut with another Cuttlebug die and are in Basic Grey Perhaps paper.

The Old Olive layer of dp is from the SU! SAB Welcome Friends paper pad. Love that paper!! I wish SU! had a sampler pack of In Color dsp, though. I know they sell each color separately with the Patterns packs, but a sampler would be nice, don't you think? Any demos reading with some influence?

The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry dotted grosgrain and the button is from my stash. Sentiment is from the SAB Whimsical Words set (yes, I got a ton of SAB stuff :)).

As predicted, Carter is waking up, so time to play. We finally have sunshine today and I hope you do, too! Thanks for looking!
