Stamp Something

This will be my last card of the day!
I've used the sketch from the Stamp Something challenge as it had the simplicity I wanted for this image.
I drew this orchid to use for Sympathy,Get Well,Thinking of You etc type of cards but have also used it for birthday cards,too.It's the kind of image which can be used to different effect depending on the sketch/layout.
I've used Promarkers ,as usual,Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder,Martha Stewart doily punch and ribbon which I bought loose from a craft shop in Belfast which is relocating
This is another of the images which has been made into stamps and which will be available to buy from apassionforstamps very soon.
Enjoy your weekend! Ruth x

I've added a few photos which were taken during the week..
