Iris

Last post for today - just taking my chance while I can!! This card is for Rainbow Lady's challenge this week which has been set by guest designer Tiina. The theme is your favourite flower - and this is where the most difficult part of this card came in - making a choice! I finally decided on an iris although it could equally have been a rose or a calla lily. I decided to keep it simple and let this lovely flower speak for itself. The backing paper is from HOTP and the stamp is Rubbadubbadoo. The image has been coloured using inktense pencils again and mounted onto a piece of cuttlebugged card. The only embellishments are a knotted ribbon and brads. Thanks for your visit.

    I think my particular favourite this past week has to be the four seasons.
