Stately Iris

Good Afternoon!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Stamp TV, Emboss And Color, Mod Squad, Flowers, and Simon Says Monday, B Is For.....

 
I used the Iris flower image from Stately Flowers 8, by Melanie Muenchinger available from Gina K Designs.  I stamped the image with Versa Mark and Black Embossing Powder, colored with Copic Markers.  Using Spellbinders Circle die I cut a window in the card stock.  The image was adhered to the circle cut out and placed on a doily on the inside as well as the Happy Easter sentiment stamped in lower the left corner.  Spellbinders Hearts Circle die frames the outside window.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Copic Colored Adhesive Pearls and Enamel Brads for accents.  

 
Thanks for coming by.....8 more days til Spring!
 
Enjoy~~
