Girl in Orchid

Pantone has declared this to be the year of Radiant Orchid, and I had that color in my head when I colored this adorable Sarah Kay image called Winter Warmth.

I started by stamping this sweet Winter Warmth (Stampavie) onto white cardstock, and then I colored it with Copic markers. I then cut it out with an oval die and matted it with a white scallop oval. This image was adhered to a white card base with Joy Foam Pads.

I decided to go with a White on White technique from Technique Junkies, so I added the die cut Lace Corner Deco F (Cheery Lynn Designs) pieces in the corners. Some sweet little Baby Bling White Pearls were added to the lacy corner pieces.

I love these sweet Sarah Kay stamps. There's still a few of these left in the store, so check them out here and grab 'em while you can. :-)  Be sure to use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% off your order while you are shopping at Classy Cards 'n Such.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Lovely card, Holly. I'm so glad Pantone picked the purple this year as I'm crazy for purple. Your white on white is truly effective. I never noticed the nice pearls you added when I looked at your card on the TJ group. Very nice.

This is so peaceful and pretty, I love the sweet image and the steam coming from her cup! The Lace Corner Deco adds just the perfect touch here.

Hi Holly. I really like your pretty card, but I'm so confused about the technique. I cannot find that one on the TJ alpha list or by month anywhere (I have an online subscription). I wanted to try it. Is it maybe under another name? Can you tell me the month/year issue? THANKS, Aimeslee Winans xoxo email: Aimeslee at gmail dot com

Love that precious image, Holly! If something can be cute and elegant at the same time, this card certainly fits at the top of that category. :-D Thanks so much for playing along in our "Easter/ Pastel colors" challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun this fortnight and I hope we're going to see you again for the next challenge, too. Good luck in the draw.
