The CD Sunday Challenge - Exotic Birds and Blooms

After a real wet day with pouring  heavy rain all morning,  so dark I had to have the light on,  it had a very winter look outside.   As I have said before the sun was shining somewhere just not here in Somerset.
Today I bring you my card for the CD Sunday Challenge this week is Exotic Birds and Blooms.   They said if you did not have both you could do one or the either.   Mojo was not working very well on this one,  the exotic bird got the bird it was too big and well got canned,  along with the ideas for the card.   
So this is what I was left with this just a very simple card,  hope it will be OK.
I used Joanna Sheens CD The Royal Horticultural Society disc number two,   I love this image but as you know I love Orchids.  I put a glitter peel off around the image,   the backing paper is from the image on the disc.  I used parchment orchids which I brought sometime ago from Claire's Crafts,  they are on a sheet and you just cut them out and then bend them into shape.   Finished off with pink gems and pale pink ribbon.
I hope you are having a better day then me and the weather is better with you than here.
I shared with you a few weeks ago my orchid to my surprise it now has another flower stem coming off the one its flowering on,  so it looks like another few orchid flowers.
Have a good evening
Take Care
