Orchid Blooms

I made this using today's color challenge, the color in the challenge were, Orchid Opulence, Sage shadow and Kraft plus neutrals if needed. I actually don't have any kraft so i used creamy caramel in its place.

Most people hate Orchid Opulence, I actually like it, if it is used subtlety.

I am so happy that I hoarded some of last year's Enchanted dp! it worked out perfectly for this card.

I used papertrey's out on a limb set and each bloom has a little stickles in the center, looks very nice in real life.

For those who are a little curious about the car cost all said and done it was $200! Not terrible but not great either. We are looking into a locking gas cap to hopefully avoid this in the future!

We took Megan with us to the mechanics so she could see that it was broken and they had to fix it, then we talked about not putting water in the car. I do think by the end she really got it, she hung her head because she was embarrassed, usually a good sign she understands. Poor kid she was just trying to help.....LOL!

Supplies: Out on a limb, Papertrey, Orchid Opulence, Sage shadow, black, white and enchanted dp, Orchid Opulence, creamy caramel, black ink, stickles, brads, ribbon.
