Got my flowers .....

Well the day finally arrived .... yep, my Wild Orchid over the top flower order was delivered this afternoon and of course I couldn't wait to get in and play/create with them ....
The result is the above card which I'm feeling kinda proud of.  I apologise for the quality of the photo - I wanted to get it onto my blog before one of the challenges ended and I couldn't find the right light.  I printed out my digi stamp onto SU! kraft cs and then used my prismas and solvent to colour and I'm sure you'll admit that it is pretty darn awesome!  Now I wish I could take credit for this brilliant idea but I must admit I saw a card from a member of a DT from a recent challenge (when I find it I will post a link to it) and thought it was gorgeous - very "vintagey".

I'm going to get ready to go off to bed now so goodnight and I hope you like the card.
