The Spring Orchid by Julia Spiri

I'm off work this week and with my husband and daughter away on a camping trip together I'm managing to find lots of lovely time to craft. Today I have been working with The Spring Orchid by Julia Spiri. She's so delicate and was a joy to colour. 

I've also been playing with my Inkadinkado set, which is one of those impulse buys that us crafters tend to make that then sits unused for a while. I fancied dusting it off today and used it to create the background flower, which I coloured with watercolour pens and my wink of stella pen, before fussy cutting and mounting on some linen textured card, which I die cut fancy corners on. I finished the whole card with some gems.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
