Thinking of You Orchid Inspiration

Hello bloggers. How was your 4th of July. Mine was quiet, mowed lawn all afternoon. I mow about 2 1/2 acres so it consumes most of the day. My sister came out on Saturday and we had our celebration then & power washed the deck, yay! So Sunday was rest day, & then back at it on Monday. I like to mow late in the day because when you have Lupus as I do, the sweet sun is NOT your best friend!
My card today is made with the beautiful Botanic Orchid Collection from Heartfelt Creations, of course, and it's a little different. I wanted to try my hand at neutrals instead of pink, white, or another pastel for this shaker card. I love this look. I think it's dramatic and the pops of gold mirror paper add a tad bit of elegance. I hope you'll give these colors a try.

You can find complete instructions for this card and lots of other beautiful projects on the
 Heartfelt Creations Blog, so be sure to stop in there and take a peek!

Thanks for stopping in today
Hugs, Maureen


  1. Oh my goodness, this is stunning! I love the colors and the design and your attention to detail!

  2. How creative. I love the monochromatic colors and the added shaker embellishment. I love all types of shaker cards but yours is stunning.
