Yellow Siberian Iris

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Teneale. She has a really great gallery with a lot of pretty floral cards.

Here's HER CARD that I chose to CASE.

I kept the same layout, floral theme, cut-out oval panel, and ribbon placement.

I used different stamps, added background stamping to the Summer Sunrise panel, added a black mat panel, and added half-backed pearls.

The iris was colored with Wild Wasabi and Marigold Morning reinkers. The background stamping was done with Versamark. All stamps on the card are from the Siberian Iris set from Flourishes.

The inside of the card includes a Summer Sunrise panel with one of the flourishes stamped along the bottom edge in Versamark.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Flourishes Siberian Iris
Paper: PTI White, PTI Summer Sunrise, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Wild Wasabi, Marigold Morning, Versamark

I received some more AWESOME birthday cards yesterday. Seriously, everyone who sent me birthday wishes, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

The floral vase card is from Debi (bottomphish), the pink and brown cupcake card is from Lesley (sunifla1), the pink and black cow card is from Jackie (strappystamper), the patriotic Hanna card and rhinestones are from Janette (blessingsx3), the red/white/blue floral one is from Collette (heavensent), the river rock Asian Flair card is from Amy (pickletree), and the blue Essence of Love card is from Leslie (lesliespringer). They're all beautiful, girls, thank you so much! {BIG HUGS!}

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Enjoy what's left of the holiday weekend!

I did it! I put your card in the mail yesterday (along with two other cards). If only you knew how amazing this really is! No less than a miracle! Maybe this GSG2 thing will help me actually SEND the cards I make!!!! :-)

Okay, between you and Silke, my resisitance to the Papertrey colors is weakening. This is gorgeous. I love this flower image. I almost bought it when I placed my first Flourishes order last week. Now I'm kicking myself. You are quickly becoming a problem for my pocketbook!!! ;-)
