Pink Lady Sleepers.....

Hello everybody: I have the Power Poppy set called Orchids Rock and I've been wanting to ink it up since I bought it about a month ago so, I'm taking advantage of a few challenges in which the main color they are asking is PINK, here is my card. I will enter it in a few challenges at the end of this post.

This flowers are so amazing in real life, I had to go and look for a picture of this beautiful Orchids called "Lady Sleeper" so I could have an idea of what colors they come in so I can color my image. I found this picture on Google so I tried my best to mimic this gorgeous colors.

Lady's Slipper Orchid (Cypripedium x ventricosum):

I stamped my Orchids onto a piece of Canva water color paper with Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, I like the sharp, defined lines and the embossing powder keeps your water color where you want it, with no bleeding out.  I colored with my SU markers adding a bit of shadow with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is stamped with Strawberry Slush onto a die cut piece of vellum and also clear heat embossed.  
The patter papers are from a discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, the ribbon is from my stash. That little butterfly is from a stamp set I had for several years, the problem is that I threw away the package and never bother to write the name of the company or the name of the set, this was way before I ever entertain the idea of having a blog.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from The Ton stamp set called Pyrotechnics, the die cut is from Cuttle Bug, I added a pink ribbon to remind everybody that October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, early detection saves lives!!!!!
I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

CRAFT ROCKET CHALLENGES #25, use ribbon and or lace.

Hugs from Maria.
