Exotic Orchid

Hello Blog friends, it is Friday evening here and we are looking forward to the weekend - especially when a couple of warmer days are predicted as Canberra is cold and only 1.5 hours from the snow!  I hope you are looking forward to your weekend too!

Today's card has been created using the Orchid Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™ - from the Create-A-Flower Collection - these flowers are so much fun to create and so realistic.

You can see a tutorial to create the orchid HERE.  The patterned paper has been Diecut using the Victorian Medallion One.  A narrow tape measure ribbon has been added, along with a sentiment from Sentiments 3 Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™.  All Dies have been cut/embossed using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.

This card is for the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes
