Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge card



Ooohhh there is a fab sketch by Bev this week at Wild Orchid Crafts i just had to make a card for it, i know I'll be using this one again when my mojo goes walk about.


One of my new years resolutions this year was to make a matching box and decorate the inside of any cards at the same time as making the card, i have a really bad habit of not making the box until the card is needed by that time i may have used all the paper that matched the card and so far I'm doing ok, i have made 5 this week and done boxes for them all....don't know how long it'll last though ha ha.. I've used K&Co papers (again) a gorjuss Hangler image coloured with pro markers and prisma pencils, pearls and ribbon from my stash and of course the lush flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
