I made this card for a challenge at Flourishes here but I made it for a second reason. My Mom loved orchids and had many on the window sill. I think she got a few to rebloom, not many, but a few. Since she passed away in May my Dad has been looking after the flowers. He now has 2 different orchids with buds on them!! He doesn't do anything special with them, I don't think, and here TWO of them at the SAME time have buds!! Way to go Dad!
Stamps: Gina K Botanical Dreams
Paper: Whisper white, always artichoke, regal rose
Ink: Mellow moss, regal rose, pretty in pink
Other: sakura glitter pen(you can't see it but the raised background has glitter on it, very pretty) ribbon, SU finial press embossing folder, corner punches, brads


  1. Very beautiful card Dawn. I love your background and how you did the ribbon. Glad to hear your Dad is OK.
