Meet the twins...

...I thought they would be perfect for the "Wild Orchid Challenge".

The latest challenge - 25 - is a sketch. If you would like to know more pop over to the challenge site and see all the wonderful creations there.
The sketch was lovely and there was so much inspiration from the site DT. I hope this meets the requirements of the challenge.
I've used blooms from WOC and other sources to create the embellishment. The trim at the bottom & top of the card is punched CS using the Martha Stewart Doily border punch.I used an Antique Linen Distress Ink pad on the edges of the card and all the matts.
Some of the crystal ribbon was wrapped around the central matt and a bow attached; decorated with a couple of pearl stick-pins and a blue rose.
I kept the colouring of the image fairly simple as I wanted to create a creamy look.

Skin: E000, E00, E02, R20
Hair: E40, E41, E43
Dresses: Y21, W-0, W-1
Background: BG10, 0, w-0, W-1

That's the first of the newbies played with and a challenge completed as well.....................

What a great card Toni, with a real vintage feel to it. It goes without saying that, as ever, you knock the Copic work out of the park every time! :)
