I created this card for a recent  Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast. Stef picked a great site to draw inspiration from. As soon as I saw this cake, I knew I wanted to use Flourishes gorgeous Orchid stamp set.

I stamped the Orchid image in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it with  Copic Markers (YG0000, YG01, YG03, YG17, Y13, Y17 and red spica pen). The image was cut out and adhered to a frame cut and embossed with the largest  Tear Drop Circle and a Standard Circle Nestabilities die.

With the same Standard Circle die used for the frame, a piece of MME Lime Twist Life is a Party was cut and embossed. The edges were sanded and the circle was layed inside the frame. The orchid was adhered over the frame and paper with dimensionals. A sentiment from the orchid set was stamped on the right hand side of the paper with Tuxedo Black Ink.

A 4 3/16″ square of Solar White cardstock was embossed with the Elegance M-Bossibilities folder (I do love that folder!) that had been inked with New Sprout Memento Ink. It was stitched to a 4 1/4″ square of Sour Apple Cardstock.  A piece of my new favorite May Arts ribbon was threaded through one of the Tear Drop circle holes  and tied around the layers. The frame was adhered over the squares with dimensionals.

The card base was cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities dies. Nina Brackets gorgeous new Fancy That! Border Bling and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs and smiles
