When crafters praise the products and service from a certain company over and over again, you tend to take notice.
Once such company is Wild Orchid Crafts. The paper flowers they manufacture are absolutely stunning and they are showing up on numerous card crafter's blogs from all over the world.
Just the other day I placed my very first order. Since I wasn's sure which sizes to get, I chose a variety from 4mm to 25mm all in white (save for one which was sold out of the white, so I got ivory). Why all in white? Well, now I can use my Copics to create ANY COLOUR I wish! Besides five sets of Roses, I also chose some Cherry Blossoms and Cala Lillies. I also couldn't resist trying out a few clear crystals too.
To my amazement, the shipping was cheap, and FAST! It took just over two weeks to arrive all the way from the U.K. to Canada.
Here is my first card using my new treats:
And now there is a new blog set up just to inspire us card makers using their product. To celebrate, they are offerring a HUGE blog candy giveaway! Be sure to visit Wild Orchid Challenge by July 11th for a chance to win this incredible package:
