Timeless Tuesday

Today's Timeless Tuesday Challenge over at the Flourishes blog is a sketch...and it's from my fellow Stamper's Dream teammate Kimberly Crawford. AWESOME sketch, Kim!!



I love this Siberian Iris set...and guess what??....you can get it at Stamper's Dream!! Michelle carries a bunch of Flourishes sets now including this one.

Rather than stamping the large iris as the focal point, I decided to do something different and use the Happy Mother's Day sentiment as the focus with the large iris stamped in the background. There's also one more large iris stamped on the inside of the card in the lower right-hand corner. Pretty straightforward card, but if you have any questions, just let me know.

SUPPLY LIST ~
Stamps: Flourishes Siberian Iris

Ink: Versamark, PTI Plum Pudding
Accessories: Kaiser Craft Adhesive Pearls, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart Butterfly and Border Punches, White Primas from SU Pretties Kit, Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Dimensionals
