IRIS BLOOMS

Hi, can you believe it's Thursday already, where did the week go!  Tonight, we are meeting my best friend from my childhood, whom I also worked with for 30 years at a new German Restaurant for dinner.  The menu sounds delish and we are anxious to try it. 





Today's card is for the challenge at Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge #196, and it's a
case it challenge.  I have used the colors in the example and flowers.


My Card Recipe

Stamp - Penny Black, Single Iris, stamped several times
I used Marvey brush markers to color right on the stamp
Card stock - Green is pearlized by ColorBox
Rhinestones - Kaiser
After I stamped the Iris flowers, I sponged on Versamark Watermark ink (clear)
right from the pad, then heat embossed with Powder Keg Sparkling Ice embossing powder
The bird is a new to me punch from Stampin Up
Gingham Bow from my Stash

Hope you are enjoying your Thursday.  Thanks for stopping by. Until later...........

Sue, Lovely card. I love how you stamped the iris and leaves. The embossing does make a whole new look to this card and I love it. Nice and sparkly (is that a word?). Anyway I hope you enjoys your dinner with your friend. Sound like a lot of fun and great food. Let us know how it was.

Oh my goodness Sue-I think this is outstanding. It looks hand painted-hard to believe it is a stamp. What a gorgeous beauty. I hope you dinner was wonderful and you shared some good times with your friend. Love that "Springtime at the Falls" picture for your blog header.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
