Orchid 3D with paper embroidery

Another day over and we are already into March. I don't know where the time goes really, you wake up and the days just seem to fly by and it's time for bed again. Do you feel like that? Our little granddaughter is staying for a second night. We went off to craft for a couple of hours this morning and then back home for lunch and a play. She also came with my friend and I to the concert in the park tonight. We left here about 5.30 and picked up Fran and then headed up to get a close park. There was something on at the oval so a fair bit of parking was already taken and so we had to walk a little way. They usually have a barbeque put on by the Lion's club with several choices but tonight they had one of the local highschools doing a fundraiser and they only had sausages in bread, so we decided to walk over 2 streets and buy take away. The concert wasn't bad, an ensemble of 4 people playing classical music on 3 violins and 1 bass and a second act of a solo guitarist playing in between one of their breaks. A cooler night so we took jackets, scarves and a blanket and I convinced Layla to sit on my lap for the last bracket of music so we could share the blanket because she didn't want it on and I didn't want her to catch cold. We bought some glow sticks and she had fun playing with them. It went till about 9.45 p.m. and by the time we walked back to the car, dropped Fran home and drove to our place it was probably about 10 p.m. I watched a little tv after putting Layla to bed and left hubby to read her a story and turn out the light. So another long day but an enjoyable one.
For my card tonight I've decided to share an embroidered card I made a little while ago and haven't put on the blog yet. No stamping involved in this one.
I embroidered a corner pattern in a blue variegated thread and then punched slits on the side and threaded some blue and white gingham ribbon through them. I made up this lovely orchid 3D which I saved from a share on a 3D group a couple of years ago. I put this one together using silicone. The topper was adhered to a blue basecard made from stash card. The best wishes is from a gold sticker sheet
Thanks for stopping by,
Take Care,
