MC Jan/14 - Persian Motif - The Woods HB card

Well it was another good and creative day... And again I love the way the card turned out. BIG GRIN

I used aspects of the Spellbinders Persian Motif set to create my bottom oval layer and then scanned the design and cut with my electronic cutter.

Love the colors I used. One of the challenges asks to use "orchid"... I'm keeping my fingers crossed this is close enough to orchid shades - beats me. and since none of my ink pads or colors says orchid - sheesh... And I figured pinks and orchids can come pretty close to crossing the color line.

Anyway, to see more details and descriptions, just click on either card image and enjoy.'m using a couple calligraphic stamps from Quietfire Design.

And it fits for these challenges:
MIM Challenge  #127  Birds
Aud Sentiment  #98 sentiment
Inky Impressions  #141 pink & girly
Lil Red Wagon  #220 orchid (color)
Penny's Challenges  #160 embellishments
Simon Says Stamp Challenge  emboss it
Incy Wincy Designs  #228  texture

Thanks Yogi for sharing your project in the “Any Sentiment” Challenge. Orchid I always thought was lavender [and you have that covered], but now that you mention it, orchids come in a lot of different colors! I have my finger crossed and it isn't even our challenge! LOL! I love the sentiment you used by the way - and a creative way to design your card supporting the message!
