Orchid Time

I have had this wonderful Cheery Lynn Designs Orchid die for quite some time...
I need a little practice getting it to look right, but practice makes perfect, as they say..lol
It is a bit more "3D" in real life.....
 
I decided to do  the challenge at Joan's Gardens today (it ends on Thursday morning)
 
 
the challenge is to :
use double ovals
use a sentiment
have a plain background
have 2 colors and
an item purchased from Joan's Gardens
 
I really need to get busy and do a few things, but that orchid die kept calling my name
you know, like chocolate calls you!!
 
Products used that can be purchased at Joan's Gardens
are Cheery Lynn Designs Orchid die and Cheery Lynn Designs Polynesian Sails die
the sentiment is a Marianne stamp
Also, every Wed Joan has a "Wild Wednesday" sale...so go take a peek!!

Beautiful Diane. I haven't see this die used yet and I think you did a great job on it.
Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
