Classy Ladies and Orchid Opulence

I almost didn't have anything to post tonight, not because of lack of inspiration but because I was fortunate enough to spend another evening with my fellow SIS demos who attended my pastels class. We laughed and stamped and snacked and really enjoyed ourselves! But since you already saw all the pastels projects several times over, at the end of the evening I had nothing new to show you.

Fortunately, the challenge on splitcoast today was to use Orchid Opulence in a card, and this just happens to be one of the colors I came to like recently (after ignoring it for almost a whole year). So I had a reason to stamp a quick card. I grabbed the On Gossamer Wings set (one of my all-time favorites) and decided to use a layout from a previous sketch challenge. I knew I wanted to use Elegant eggplant as the base and I had to use orchid opulence, but the third color (Blush Blossom) took a little longer to find. These were also the three colors I used to stamp and color, with a little bit of sage shadow thrown in for the leaves. It's not bad for a card stamped on a real time budget.

I can't belive you did this after I left, I want to be you when I grow up. I had a great time at the class last night. If you ever have the punch class again I really want to go to that one to. Your classes are great! You are a wonderful instructor.
