Beautiful Blossoms!

Today's way to use it challenge was to use Orchid Opulence one of the colors that hardly gets used. I decided to make a tri-fold blossom card I actually love the blossoms in this color! I have noticed that my lilac tree is starting for it's blossoms, it should be in full bloom by mother's day. I love lilacs they are so pretty and the smell fabulous! If you would like to try this challenge you can do so here WT110 - Orchid Opulence

To make this card I marked one long end at 3" and the other side at 5.5", lined up the marks in the cutter and cut. So you would actually be cutting on a diagonal. Then I scored at 4.25" from the tall side, and scored again at 3.75" from the first score line not from the end. Then I used a sponge to sponge on some Always Artichoke next I used piece of scrunched up plastic and Always artichoke ink to sponge on the back ground color. Stamped the blossom and leave images, mounted on card stock and added ribbon!

Supplies used: Blossoms abound, Happy Harmony, Orchid Opulence, Always Artichoke and VV card stock, Orchid Opulence, Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant inks, Oval punch, Ribbon, Eyelet, Sponge, Plastic wrap, Stardust pen.
