Orchid Simplicity

Hello everyone,

Today's post is a sweet thank you card.

The card base is Studio G.  The image and sentiment are Stampin' Up Happy Watercolor stamped in Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede.  The embellishments are Crystal Stickers Mark Richard 2mm clear gems.

One of the things that appeals to me so much about this particular stamp set is the juxtaposition of the rather formal images, simple font and 'loose' background patterns.  These things shouldn't work so well together.  I chose this image because, like Monday's card, the embossed corner coordinates rather well with the image.  The sentiment is raised because it's covering up a blotched stamp attempt.  I wasn't sure about the white on white but with the embossing, it seems to work just fine.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
