Lavender Orchids

I made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I used Asela's "Friendship's Garden" stamp set available from GinaK Designs. This is a new release from GinaK and I'm having a lot of fun working with it. The image is colored with Copic markers. The Designer Paper is from Basic Grey -- Porcelain and Sugared paper pads. I mounted the design on Pale Plum, then Perfect Plum cardstock. The borders are Basic Black cardstock. The Pale Plum piece under the orchid was run through the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug embossing folder. The frames are Long Rectangles and Petite Scalloped Nestabilities. The butterflies were punched with a small punch purchased at Michaels and the Pearls are from Stamper's Dream.
