Challenges for a New Year - Card 3

The third card for this weekend uses another new stamp set for me, 'Climbing Orchid' from the Stampin Up 2017-18 catalogue. I have been wanting this since July and finally bought the bundle with the matching framelits.

For this card my inspiration came from these 3 challenges:
This card used Cherry Cobbler card for the base and the ink on the orchids and greeting. The background is Rose Red card, which was embossed using the Brick embossing folder, stamped with the small dots from 'Timeless Textures' in Versamark ink and sone versamark smudges. The greeting is both Cherry Cobbler and Rose Red, stamped twice close on each other. The greeting is cut with the Top Note die. 

The orchid was stamped both as the full piece and the individual pieces and layered together with a stem of silver ribbon.

Thank you to the designers of these challenge sites for their inspiration.
