BILL'S ORCHIDS - Leonies Fab Friday #9 'a touch of white'

This is my effort for Leonie's Fab Friday challenge #9 - 'a touch of white'.

My lovely neighbour, Bill, is an avant gardener. He is over 80yrs old and still attends his allotment. Not only that, but he has a passion for orchids, this being a picture of one of his gorgeous examples. I took this picture and cut it down to ATC size. The acetate overlay has been stamped with Brilliance moonlight white and an absolutely beautiful inkadinkado stamp. I attached the acetate to the photo with a small white brad and a little length of white fancy fibres so that the acetate swings about over the photo. The gorgeous photo corner is from Anna Griffin's Hannah collecion.

Hi Joanne,
What a beautiful orchid, thats amazing isn't it - I'd love to be able to grow something like that, but manage to kill weeds!!

I love what you have done to make it into a fabulous ATC. Lovely work.

Many thanks for the lovely comments. I showed this ATC to Bill today and he was thrilled. His gardening knowledge is reknowned and all our neighbours appreciate him.
