Anniversary Love and Wild Orchid Crafts DT!

Hello, sweet friends! I am excited beyond belief to share that I am one of the new Design Team members for Wild Orchid Crafts! My love for this company is no secret, as their products have blossomed all over my work for several years. My teamies are exceptionally talented and it is an honor to design alongside them. ♥️
Color me sparkly... I still cannot believe it. ♥️
To celebrate, I made a card for my parents 54th anniversary pairing Wycinanka chippies with new and old Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The pretty pink flowers blend in a bit in this picture, but stand out beautifully in person. The gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Heart Painted collection, a beautiful gift from a treasured friend. The lovely Wycinanka Charming frame was covered in crackle paste, as was their sweet birdhouse.

Love is from the Mr. & Mrs. Ornament, while the darling garland on top is also from the same collection. Hugging the 40mm Trellis Rose are pink Babies Breath, which is my first time using WOC fabric flowers. They are stunning! Hip Rosebuds, Open Roses, and Mini Sweetheart Blossoms are sprinkled throughout.
The precious birdies are Memory Box Resting Birds. My love-dovey foliage is a combination of Magnolia Heart Swirls and Impression Obsession Heart Stems. The pretty butterfly is a Sue Wilson die. The Sweet Love crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art's Valentine Bundle and the lace is from Live & Love Crafts. So many gorgeous products to celebrate a lifetime of love. ♥️

Lovely challenges entered:
 *DL.Art Thankful Thursday~ Anything Goes
 *Scrapy Land~ Anything Goes (I used Impression Obsession, Magnolia, Memory Box, and Sue Wilson dies)

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day! ♥️
