I am not gifted with a green thumb. My brother once told me that if there was a society for the prevention of cruelty to plants he would have no choice but to report me.
I try. I really do. But I think I either don’t give my plants the attention they need or I over love my foliage.
I’ve sought help. Those who don’t suffer from my affliction offer advice like “try a fertilizer”, “more sun, less sun”, “water more, water less” or “change the soil”. It’s to no avail.
So, I have decided to focus on the flowers I’m good at – those made from paper.
Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight are the main colours used on this card with a little Old Olive added in for the leaves. Other than the stamped center, I coloured the flower with Stampin’ Blends.
The background features the Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. If you are looking for a paper workhorse, the wood grains in this package really do it all.
A dimensional or two placed between the orchid layers really adds a lot to this card.
