An Orchid

Pin It

This is for SEPTGKDCK. LOVED playing with this sketch Cammie!!

I colored with Copics but did use a SU Ruby Red marker as well.

Thanks to LuvLee for these gorgeous images! They came from the Botanical Dreams set over at Gina K Designs. It is a BEAUTIFUL set!



See the embellishment in the bottom right corner?? That is a thumb tack!
I found a fabulous pack of thumb tacks at Office Depot...cut off the 'tacks' and now they're embellies! :)
Best part, the whole pack was only $1.99!



Thanks for visiting!

Totally awesome idea with the thumb tacks. I often go into hardware and officeware sections, and TRY to find something new, but I have never been THIS lucky! WOW!

Gorgeous Card, JenMarie!

Love the card! I'm totally laughing cause I bought those thumb tacks for the same reason!! :) Hey...for the price it's awesome!! Great minds think alike 'ey! LOL (mine are a different color and I think I got them at Walmart or Target -- but they are the same otherwise)
