Hello, sweet friends! Well, I am "late" with this digital, but it is ever too late for flowers? I didn't think so! LOL! This is a beautiful digital image and is the digital version of the clear stamp set, and I love it because I can resize it (among other things). So I made a quick CAS card using just the top portion of this cymbidium orchid, colored it quickly, die cut it using a realistic cross-stitch pattern, matted it, and voila! It was done...well, I did add some sequins...then it was done! Yay for me! I love to color, so I know I'm going to make more of these with various sentiments using other colors. Always need cards for our stash, right?
As always, thanks so much for taking a closer look at my card! I am always encouraged by your comments.
Hope all my friends from North America are starting to see some signs of spring. Such a beautiful time of year. Tender hugs, all!

PP images look amazing stamped (or printed) off the page or on the edge! Your soft colors on this are so lovely...your whole card gives me hope that Spring will come (I say this with a foot+ of snow all around). The cross stitched design on the edge is such a terrific way of finishing your card. TFS

Cheryl, this is positively dreamy......and BEAUTIFUL! Your expert coloring always leaves me in awe. Love the soft blue shading you put around the orchids and their foliage...a little touch that really adds so much.

You are always an inspiration for those beautiful power poppy stamps and digitals. I always like your coloring and this is no exception. I really like how the cross stitch edging frames this. Looking forward to a time where the snow leaves us, but in the meantime the snowshoeing is good this year!
