Memory Box Orchid Branches

I think these Orchid Branches from Memory Box look so dainty and delicate.  I stamped both the branches and All a Flutter butterfly onto Shimmery White paper in Going Gray and colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I sponged the edge of the mini Baroque Die with Going Gray then added SU Basic Pearls and Star Dust Stickles.

The piece of Blushing Bride paper was sprayed with Tsukineko Sheer Frost Shimmer Spritz before running it through my Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Jamara Embossing Folder - great effect!  I added a Spellbinders flourish accent before gluing my 3/8” Taffeta Ribbon in Basic Gray.

I hope everyone is having a great week!   

A close up of the flowers and butterfly.

Donna, beautiful card. I've just returned from vacation and am trying to catch up on everything. Lots of plants have gone past, but there are a lot of blooms on others.
