This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Ode to Orchid...

I thought because Orchid Opulence is retiring from the Stampin' Up! Colors that I would make a tribute card. Not than I ever cared much about this color, but now that it is not going to be available come July, it suddenly seems so pretty! Anyway here is my simple but oh so Springy little "Ode to Orchid"



Supplies all Stampin' Up! Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly set. Ink: Basic Black and So Saffron Classic. Card stock is Orchid Opulence, Barely Banana, and Whisper White. Designer paper Shades of Spring. Butterfly punch. Mat Pack and piercing tool.

ROTFL I so know what you are saying! Never want it until it is going to be gone! My daughter might just freak if I tell her...she loves this color! Great job pairing it with yellow! Just pops!

Beautiful card! I love the orchid with the banana. Too bad they'll both be gone soon. :(
