DL Christmas card

 Hi Everyone, before I start on the subject of my card, I have to give you an update on my orchid. I don't want to bore you, BUT! LOL. I really am thrilled that having never had one flower for me, I have one that flowered and not only that still with buds to come, here is my floral success and with another leaf too.

OK enough of me boasting of my unlikely floral achievement. On to my card. 

This is cased from Karen, she has step by step instructions on each card and I thought I would be able to do it and this is my result, OK, I forgot to add the tape in the correct place, but I think it's OK. I'm pleased with the result and would haven't have thought of doing this with the inks without seeing her card. 
The sentiment was going to be black, and I thought I would emboss it with clear sparkly powder, it turned out to be white sparkly! so I added black ink to the sentiment again (thank goodness for a stamping platform) and used clear sparkle this time and this is the result. The snowflakes are cut from holographic card.

Wow, your orchid is doing so well, it is just gorgeous! Good for you for keeping it growing! I love your card, it is really cool looking and it looks like it was fun making it too. How many of us have used white sparkly when we meant to use clear sparkly embossing powders?! lol But you saved it and I am loving that. I couldn't see how the other gal created it as it took me to some kind of bloglovin' site, which I know about bloglovin', but just didn't take me to her card. Not sure what I was doing wrong. lol Hugs, Brenda

What a fun inking technique & a beautiful card! I'm so impressed with your orchid success! Had to end up cutting off both shoots of mine, but the new leaf is growing & the plant still looks healthy, so maybe someday I'll get a bloom!
