This has been a busy week. All week long, I kept thinking about the challenge over at Global Design Project. The sample is beautiful. I really liked the colors and layout and so decided as soon as I had a chance, I’d work on designing something. I love the Climbing Orchid stamp set and determined to use that  as the centerpiece of the card.

Design Notes for Climbing Orchid Card:

I loved that Charlet used both Very Vanilla and Whisper White card stock on her card. The Very Vanilla provides a soft background and the Whisper White lets the center piece pop. Well, I more or less did the same thing on my card. To add some shine for this one I chose to use the Champagne Foil. I used some Rich Razzleberry ink on Petal Pink card stock for one of the background pieces. The Sheet Music background stamp is one of my favorites. I sponged both of the Whisper White pieces and the Petal Pink Sheet Music piece to add a soft touch. And did you notice the piece of  Delightfully Detailed Laser cut Specialty Paper in the background? That paper is so versatile.

Supply List for Climbing Orchid Card:

The Sheet Music background stamp comes in either wood mount or clear mount. I, personally, prefer the wood mount for large stamp. But, it’s really personal preference.
