A Blog Award and Some Orchids

Hi All,

I have a card to show you today, and I also received something from a fellow blogger!  When I checked my email, I found that I had a blog award from Monique!!!  Thank you Monique, that is sooo sweet of you!  Here are the rules for playing:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award...done.

2. Copy the award on my blog...done. (also on my sidebar)

3. List 3 things you like about yourself:
- I am really good at math, and most things related to Economics, Accounting, Revenue Management, etc.
- I love animals - they give me lots of joy.
- Travelling is one of my life's passions - I take at least 2 trips per year, and I love to experience new places!

4. Post a picture that you love:
I am posting a picture from a dolphin-watching excursion I was on when I went to New Zealand.

5. Tag 5 people to give this award to (in no particular order):
- Kim

Now, onto a card.  I made this card for no reason at all, save for the fact that I love the image.  I used the Pot O'Orchids For Lulu image from Stamping Bella.  This collection of images is so much fun and has a really whimsical feel!

My card base is Whisper White, and I added a green piece of Porcelain Prints DSP with a Basic Black mat, and stitched them with my Janome Sew Mini.  I tied a huge bow with some Organdy ribbon and my Bow Easy, and stuck it to the top with a Mini Glue Dot. 

The main panel is Bella's Bestest paper, and I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured it in with Prismacolor Pencils.  I matted that with a Basic Black piece, and added some blue pearls to the left side.  I also had some scraps leftover from a Spellbinder's die cut I did, so I attached some of them to the right side of the panel, and added some blue pearls to that as well.

Thank's it for today.  Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
