Pink Iris

Good Morning!  Day 2 of coloring flowers....winter GO AWAY!  :)

Today's card is for the MIUM Challenge at Stamp TV, hosted this week by one of my Co-Guest Designer's Leslie, Holey Card Stock.  I will also be entering this in the Mod Squad Challenge, Spring 2.0, the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes With Pearls and I used the awesome sketch from My Favorite Things.

I am loving this Iris image from the new set, Stately Flowers 8, available from Gina K Designs.  I am just going to color it every color under the sun.  I can't wait til mine pop up in the gardens, I have the beautiful blue ones, and some amazing purple ones, and then a few double bearded yellow ones.  Oh Mother Nature, you are so good to me!  Thank you!
Colored with Copic Markers, I stamped the image on the FREE cut file available from Stamp TV, check the Freebies Tab.  Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circles used, I made a frame for the circle cut out.  Pure Luxury Card Stock, Bubble Gum and American Crafts, Dots & Stripes Designer Paper used.  Butterfly Punch, Button and Baker's Twine, and 3 little pearls.   
Again thank you so much for stopping by, it is greatly appreciated!
