Siberian Iris

Hello! Today's card is for a sketch challenge that I participated in at Our Creative Corner. I used a Flourishes set called Siberian Iris.

The iris is colored with Copic markers on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock and then cut out. The background is sponged with So Saffron and embossed with my Cuttlebug using the Birds and Vine CB folder.

I used nestabilities for sentiment. The is a Prima flower that I colored with a Copic marker. I also used the Martha Stewart branch punch and EK Success flourish punch.

The Almost Amethyst layer was stamped with the larger swirl stamp in the set using Almost Amethyst ink.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a great day!
