New Flowers and New Challenge for Wild Orchid Crafts!

Wild Orchid Crafts has a new flower in town!  Just look at these beauties!

They are the small, flat gardenias!!! OMG! They are a little over an inch long, such a perfect size for our cards!!  They are now on sale and you can find them HERE!! Go have a look!

Now, on to my card for this weeks' challenge.  The theme for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge this week is Blue Christmas!

I have combined a new Magnolia and an LOTV stamp.  You can find the LOTV stamp here! It is called "Christmas Robins".  Don't they look cute together?  I have also used one of the new LOTV sentiment stamps as the little postage.

I added some Polar White Flower Soft as snow here and there.  The "snow" on the ground and on the birdhouse is done with DecoArt Snow Writer we bought at NEC and then sprinkled with glitter.  I colored the images with distressed inks.

The snowflake is a Quikutz die and the flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used the 15mm roses and the 25mm Wild Rose.  My papers are S.E.I. - Kris Kringle.

This is the cute LOTV sentiment and I added the postage mark with a Stampology stamp that I already have.
It's so fun to mix and match stuff!

Anyhow, I hope you will go have a look at all the amazing cards the DT have made this week!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my little blog!

Big Hugs, Dena

A truly beautiful card, I love the way you've combined stamps from different sets. It looks like the sort of card you want to pick up and touch, not just look at, the sign of a good card, if you know what I mean.
