For The Love Of Iris......

Since I got a late start creating with Theresa Momber's new set, Warm With Love, I wanted to be sure and get a card posted with the gorgeous Iris she designed for the stamp set. When I was little, my mom had a long Iris bed down each boundary of our back yard. On one side they were blue and purple and on the other, they were golden with a deep plum edge. This is how I remember them.

My card base is Pure Luxury Kraft cs, and it is layered with Pure White PL, and designer paper from Basic Grey's Pyrus. I used a Classic Oval Nestabilities die, and colored my image with Copics. The colors used were: B00, BG0000, C1, Vo6, Y21, Y23, and YG 91, 93, 95. Sponging was done with SU! Old Olive. The sentiment is on a Fancy Tags die, and is from Theresa's previous set called Little Critters. I added cotton lace, amber pearls, and a fancy enameled brad for accents.


Thanks so much for stopping in, and if you have another free moment, please scoot over to Theresa's Blog and check out another card I was working on this week. Have a super weekend!

I love the vintage flavor of your card and that is perfect with your story about the iris. I have some dwarf purple ones that came from my homeplace that Dad gave to me before passing and then I have some tall yellow ones, and they are growing strong at the momement. Can't wait to see them. I love the look of wallpaper in your dp and the coloring on your image makes me want to just look at it all day. Tfs your beauty!!
