I have been hoarding this lovely orchid opulence cardstock that my kind friend Karen (Redbugdriver) sent to me this past summer. Thank you so much!!! So when I found these neat note cards in the 'give-away' bin at Mikes I knew just what I was going to pair them with. The stamp is a miniature version of a larger one by Penny Black and the white centre is a die cut from Frantic Stamper. I used an 'old' cuttlebug folder on the orchid background and went just a little crazy with my corner rounder punch !! Just because I had some extra time to kill I decorated the envelope too! Hope it amuses Canada Post! LOL

Oh WOW - I would be hoarding that card stock too. The stamps is wonderful - lovely against the embossed background. I am sure Canada Post will spent some time admiring your art work. I am still waiting for a parcel - sent Airmail in November from Canada. They are definitely admiring the packaging on that one - he he he Think it has gone sea mail - not airmail.

So pretty, Sue. A lovely floral tucked into the deep mid winter. This puts that little fresh hope of spring in my heart and your hoarded orchid opulence couldn't be any more perfect for your cute dotted Michael's score:) I'm sure with all the drab paper coming through the post that this sweet envelope will cause the hands that sort it to stop and admire a spell:)

Oh this is SO beautiful! I have a fondness for orchids. Growing them is the hobby that scrapbooking and card making have pushed out. This elegant image is one I have looked at getting for some time but have always wondered what I would do with it. Well this lovely card is very inspirational and may tip the scales into a future purchase. Your rounded corners look fantastic as does that embossed background. Love it all!
