Crafts & Me DT Card...........Orchid Of The Night

Good morning my lovelies & what a beautiful morning it is up here along the coast. You gotta love sunny mornings they just perk you up for the rest of the day.....I think so anyhoo lol.
Right onto my post & this week its us 'Rockin' Rubber' Girlies & this week the lovely Sylvia has chose the theme which is something you all love to use.......
Yes RIBBON most of us love to use this.....we have to.........ITS THE LAW!!!!!
This week I have used another stamp it took me a while to get cus she had always flown the nest but she finally flew home to me & here she is.....

This is the beautiful 'Orchid Of The Night' by Molly Harrison which of course is exclusive to Crafts & Me.

The sentiment which I found in my stash says 'Friends' on it but its got a sheen to it so was hard to photo.
All of the flowers are made by moi using Bearly Mine papers that I've used on the card slightly dabbing them with white ink & then inking edges with vintage photo & finally giving them a spritz of 'Gold' glimmer mist also from Crafts & Me.

Matting for the image I've used the new release nestie, isn't it gorgeous you may see this a lot to be honest lol. Everything has had their edges inked with Vintage Photo distress ink & all papers have been distressed as well with my skissors....

Here are 2 of my handmade flowers. The stamens in the middle are from Crafty Emma's Store.

She has been coloured with copics.......I keep using diff skin tones as we all have diff skin tones so the last few have been diff....anyway
YR0000 YR000 E01 E13 R20
E35 E37 E71 E53
B0000 B000 B32 B45 B60 little smidging of B79 & I cant remember which green I used sorry.

I havnt made one of these cards since before crimbo & I loved making it. The leaves are from my new Marianne die I love these I waiting on postie bringing my other 1.

All papers used are from the lushious Bearly Mine the beautiful Silky Crush ribbon is from Ribbon Girl, this stuff really is soooooo beautiful I'm down to my last l;ittle bit so guess where I'm going today lol.
Everything else on my card is from my stash.
