For this card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is by Colorbok. All background panels are machine stitched. The darling little hÄnglar & stÄnglar girl, from the Sailor Kids collection, was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. Her clothing, shoes and hairbows are paper-pieced with MM Pink Dots. She was then cut out with triple Nesties. For the horizontal I used a pink double-faced satin ribbon tied into a bow and topped with an organza butterfly by CreaMotion. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Gardenia Stem Flowers, Hybrid Tea Roses, and Long Stem Stamens. WOC Pearls soften the corners.
For the first panel on the inside I used the same ribbon, another organza butterfly and some GORGEOUS Guipure Lace from WOC. For the jotting panel I used the lattice circle diecut trimmed with more WOC Pearls.
On Thursday, April 28, starting at Noon UK time, we will be having a MARVELOUS Wild Orchid Crafts BLOG HOP and there are so many lovely prizes available that you will NOT want to miss it!!! The DT will be showcasing many new and GORGEOUS products which will be available for purchase for the first time on that same day!!!

The gorgeous Pops is our GDT for April and bad me has not even had a chance to share her fabulous card.
Hi peeps and a very Happy Easter to everyone – enjoy your day whatever you are doing :)
I thought l’d share this card with you today as it is such a happy and uses some of the prettiest blooms I think.
I used one of the gorgeous sweetheart blossom which remind me of those little icing sugar flowers you get to decorate cakes with – I love them :)
Do keep an eye out on the website because there are some lovely new products being added all the time and I can tell you that they are just beautiful.
Enjoy your day whatever you are doing and hugs to all,

Hi there, it’s my turn to share a card with you on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog today.
A close up of the white baby’s breath flowers after I had pulled them to bits (as I do!). I snipped the wire off the end, pulled the pearl stamens out so I could squish the flower up to fit in under the roses then used the waste pearl stamens in the arrangement. I also dabbed an inked sponge on the roses to give them a bit more of a vintage look.
Whatever your plans I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and a happy and peaceful Easter.

Oh my goodness, I should have posted this earlier today and clean forgot all about it. Better late than never I guess.
I just love how Wild Orchid Crafts roses seem to work on any card, with any image. Loving the spring colours too!
