I too am a fan of this colour, although I rarely use it. Unfortunately I have to leave in 10 minutes, but I'll be sure to do this when I get home from work! Thanks Julia!

I don't mind OO. Just the other day I had seen something that had an OO color in it with some other color -- I remember saying "mmmmm I should try those colors together for a card" but do you think I can remember what the color is now..... Of course not!!

I'll have to play after work. Loving all the cards I'm seeing this morning.

Thanks Julia and Markiesmom

I have to take DD to pre-school, but then I'll be on the color combo site hoping for an appealing combination of colors . I have tried and failed with OO in the past.

Been there...done that, haven't we? Maybe it was a different challenge though? I think I covered the majority of my gg card front with a scene

Thanks, Julia. This is a challenge - a color I rarely use. I have no cs, but an ink spot worked for the ink. Nice to have it up early (PDT) but DH is at the door ready to go out for breakfast - normally he is just getting up now! LOL So I rushed a bit. Oh, well...

Here it is:

Great challenge Julia, I love Orchid Opulence. I have an image ready, I just need to put together a card. I'm headed to the beach tomorrow for the weekend with five of my girlfriends for a "girl's only" retreat. What a perfect challenge!

Hi! I loved doing this! Thanks Julia for choosing my idea. I have a hard time getting this color worked into my work... I used Markie's idea in my card today...

I have two Orchid Opulence pads. I bought my original, hinged pad and refill in 1998 or 1999. The second pad I bought just this last January - you know, one of the last pads to be replaced. I replaced it because I had made a few cards I really liked with my old one using Emilys color combo CC43. BUT the new one is a different color. I vaguely remember that some colors were teaked a while back, maybe when the new pads came out. I probably didn't pay attention to Orchid being tweaked because I hardly ever used it.

To me the difference is significant but I'm sure either one is OK to use with this challenge. You might want to mention in your gallery post, though, if you are using the old pad because others might find it difficult to duplicate the look with the new pad.

I posted a comparison of the two in my gallery. My photo editing software is too rinky-dink to allow me to change the image's size in order to put it into this post.

I'll try to play with the new pad - I definitely haven't warmed up to that one yet!

I'm not one for getting rid of any colors (I love lots of choices!) but THAT's a movement I would get behind Thanks for the challenge, Julia.

Great challenge Julia! I think I still have all the Orchid Opulence paper that came in my BB pack. Not a colour I reach for. I love challenges like this that get me using things I have but don't use. They're great for making room for new things
I have some ideas for this challenge....

Markie's Mom and Julia.....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo!!!! Orchid is only one step up from glorious green or brilliant blue! Those BB need to get revamped with some more workable colors.

Now that's what I call a CHALLENGE!!!

I actually had some taken out and put on my craft desk so I could use some today. What a coincidence! It is one of my favorite colors in BB.
