Siberian Iris

This is the Flourishes Siberian Iris stamp. Isn't it beautiful? Of course you know that I am a huge fan of anything Flourishes. I made this card for my friend Kathy's Birthday. On the inside I put a computer generated sentiment. She really was pleased with this card. It always makes me smile when I give a card that I have made to someone and they are wide eyed with "oh my you made this for me?"

It is suppose to rain here today and we really need the rain!! I am looking forward to the rain and to the rest of the day as I will be stamping and that is happiness for me. Wonder if the rest of you feel the same way? For all of you that commented on my patio...I wish I could have a tea party and have you all over to join me. What fun that would be! Thanks for all of your comments. You guys are awesome!!

I used SU's Lovely Lilac Designer Series paper for the background and the scallops were made using the Lovely Lilac Cardstock I used purple Vellum for the butterflies with Swarovski Crystals for the bling. Some rhinestones were glued to the scallops.

Such a pretty spring like card. I like how the butterflies pop, and how you have scallops. Lovely card.

Purple anything is good, but a "V" card with purple iris, scalloped edges and Swavorski crystal embellishments is awesome!!!

I love this iris! Your lilac with it is so pretty. Love the butterflies, as well. A little glitter is always such a nice finishing touch.

I love the light airy touch that the 3-d butterflies give this card.
