Springtime Favorite

 Hello and welcome!  Today I am sharing a card made for a March birthday with a spring theme.  The stamps that I used are from Flourishes Flowers for Jan and Taglines. I stamped the Iris with Memento Tuxedo Black on white GKD cardstock and then using a mask, I stamped the Iris again to extend the flowers to the top of the card.  I colored the image with Copics V000,12,15, G20,21,Y02.
I embossed the right side with Cuttlebug  EF Divine Swirls and added ribbon colored with Copics.  Added a Yellow butterfly cut with Cheery Lynn Die.  The image was attached to a yellow mat and then to the a card base of Bazzil lavender cardstock. Lavender Iris are a favorite of mine.

Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Use a mask or stencil on your card. Used mask to add more Iris
Oldie but a Goodie: Spring has sprung.  The sentiment stamp, ribbon, die and papers are all over 6 months old.
Sweet Stamps: Spring Flowers
Paper Pretties: Lots of layers
Fussy and Fancy: Birthday
Crafty Ribbons: Anything Goes with Ribbon


I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
