Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today!

Another busy day here, lots of work to get done.

Today is a very CAS card using Sheena Douglass's A Little Bit Sketchy Orchid Stamps.

Step by Step

1. White 6 x 6 square card.
2. First layer is black card which I have matted and layered pink satin mirri card onto.
3. I stamped the orchid and the word orchid with Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.
4. I coloured the orchid by first painting with white Pebeo acrylic paint, once dry I then coloured with Fabrico marker pens by Tsukineko then matted and layered onto base card.
5. To finish off I added pearl gems to 2 corners.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
