My Orchid - Copic Creations - Botanicals....

Thanks so much Stephanne for giving me the link to Copic Creations Challenge.
Stephanne has beautiful projects - go pay her a visit.
This weeks challenge is "botanicals" and along with all crafts I love orchids.
This is a relatively new love for me - when I moved into our current home(3 1/2 years ago)
I bought one - and they seem to love my house and my lack of care for them.....
So when Stephanne gave me the link and it was botanicals - I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Also its about time to make that thank you card for Mum and Dad for these wonderful pens.
I know they will have a look - but it will get delivered by hand next week when we meet up with the kids.
I have kept the card very simple as I was pleased with my drawing of the orchid and didn't want to detract from it.
I have used a fab piece of Basic Grey paper from the Euphoria collection - wonderful colour and also alpha letters from the same collection.
Copics used were Y00, YR04, RV000, RV02, RV04, RV34
V04, V95, R29, YG03, YG63 and YG67.
Copic Creations have a fantastic design team , so pay them a visit!
Sponsorship this week comes from Flourishes who produce amazing botanical stamps and the prize is great!
