Flourishes Siberian Iris

I just love this little card. It was just FUN to make. Of course I am going with my favorite Company - Flourishes. This is a little topiary stamp from the Siberian Iris set. I used SU's Ballet Blue Cardstock and Marker for the sentiment, which also comes with this set of stamps. I colored the topiary with my Copic Glitter Markers. I used Organdy Ribbon, which I heated the end to make it curl (got that idea from Running With Scissors' Leslie) Thanks Leslie!! I used small rhinestones on the topiary and a Swarovski Crystal on the flower.

Mother's Day is around the corner and I have made more cards with this Flourishes Set. I hope to share them all very soon. I wish you all a Very Happy Mother's Day and I guess I will be wishing it again, and again and again. You know...cause I have more cards to share...LOL.

Have a wonderful night!!

This card is calming and serene with the topiary of green. I like the curly ribbon.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! You wonder how I painted the flowers...I spray water on the stamp and then add colors with my colorpencils on the stamp!The background is made with Distress inks!

Have a nice day(Evening)

I love how you "blinged" it up, Velta!

I love that bit of curl you added to the pretty blue ribbon, Velta. I'm glad it worked for you. I was a little nervous the first time I did it. It's possible to melt or scorch the ribbon but you get a feel for it in no time at all. This card turned out very nice!
