90th Birthday Orchids

A friend wanted a special card for her Mum's 90th Birthday she had the background paper which is from the Kaiser Damask collection and her Mum loves orchids. So this is what I came up with. I used  the stunning orchid digi stamp from Aurora Wings and coloured with copic markers. Im soooooo happy with how this came out to me this is a Personal Best card. I started with a shimmery black base card, matted in beige, matted in the Kaiser Damask paper matted in shimmery black card and then with beige paper. I used peel off stickers for the Happy Birthday, the name and the age. I also added stick on pearls. After colouring the orchids which I printed out 3 times I fussy cut them out so that I could pop some of the blooms up with double sided foam tape.
The colours that I used are 

Im going to add this project to the Aurora Wings Flowers Challenge #14
