Wild Orchid Challenge and DT Call!

Hey There!  I've made it through the week... phew!  It was a rough one.  I know that trials build character, but I thought that my character was just fine (NOT!).  Oh well... I've got a long way to go, but praise God, I'm not where I used to be!!!

Last week, I gave my testimony at Celebrate Recovery.  I'm learning more and more how to be open and honest before people.  I strive to be 'real' - KWIM?  It makes for lasting relationships : )

Guess what?  I am finally entering a Wild Orchid Challenge!  Yippeeee.  Well, actually, I've entered once or twice in the past, but this time is specifically for Wild Orchid Sketch #25.  Bev has a fabulous sketch this week to follow:

Here's what came together as paper, copics, flowers, pearls and seam binding flew!!!

I chose a digi from Bugaboo (another first!) called Ava School Sign It.  I keep going out of my norm lol!  Who knows what'll happen next : )

Ava's colored with copics:  BV05 BV02 BV01 BV00; E35 E34 YR21 YR20; G28 G24 G21 G20; R05 R02 R01; W9 W7 W5; Spica Pens: Black and Red (I wrote the sentiment with the black and red spicas).

 Wow... the flowers look really off in this pic!  They don't match exactly, but the colors here are very different than what I'm looking at on my desk - grrrr...  They are a mix of Wild Orchid 10mm Open Roses, 25mm Wild Rose and Prima.  The String of pearls are from Michael's and the Lilac Pearls are Viva Decor Paper Pen. Seam binding (another first for me!) from Wild Orchid topped with a button I had in my stash and another 10mm Open Rose : )

Papers were printed on my printer some time ago, so I don't remember where they came from, sorry!  Panels are machine stitched; circle is hand doodled as well as the design on Ava's dress.  I gave her a sparkly bow (Viva Decor Glitter Liner - this works with digi's without smearing like Stickles!) topped with a half pearl.  The single corner embellishment is a paper shapers wave punch which I ran through my Big Shot Pro with Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I know... the Big Shot Pro is overkill just for an embossing folder, but ya know... I really love it!!!  I have it set up and accessible all the time, so I use it for EVERYTHING.

I think I've covered it all hee hee...  The challenge at Wild Orchid is about to end, so you better hurry to get your entry in for this week!  Also, they have a DT Call... I do believe it's also about to end - RUN!!!  The call will close at 8pm GMT on 12th June.

Thanks for taking a peek!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
