Wild Orchid Challenge meets Colour Create

This is one challenge I had to join in with as I've seen so many wonderful cards using Wild Orchid flowers.

I placed a small order with Wild Orchid just to try (as you do) and was so upset with myself, no not with the quality, but kicking myself as I should have ordered more! I got 50 roses from Wild Orchid for the same price I pay for 10 here where I live!

The next dilemma was which flowers to use. I am so pleased with how it turned out - just gonna have to wait until pay day before I can buy any more - I can certainly see how the ladies go to town on the flowers on their cards, I had to limit myself!
The image is coloured in with Promarkers, I've used sakura glitter gel pens for Tilda's under skirt and gloves, stickles on the tiara.
Colour Create Challenge - warm pink, chocolate and white.
I would recommend buying these wonderful flowers - no not just cause i'm here posting for the challenge but believe me they are fab flowers and the packaging and quick service are faultless.

Well thanks for looking,
Bye for now Sarahx
