Flowers for you... my friends!

I did this card quite awhile back and I'm not sure why I never posted it because it is one of my favorites and in my favorite color! I'm dedicating this card to all the wonderful friends I have met online and at StampTV who come visit my blog often and help encourage me to be the best I can be. You know who you are... you're reading this now!! *smile* I've always had a thing for purple but I have to admit... why God decided to put yellow in the mix is beyond me. Hee Hee Though I do like the flower, I always thought it would look better with pink or even a light blue color in there... ha! Then again... only God knows why he does what he does, the way he does it. Probably figured I'd have to have a little sunshine with my favorite color, huh? *grin* My image and tag line came from Gina K's, Elegant Flowers Stamp Set which was the first of her StampTV Kits. I couldn't wait to get my hands on these irises and have seen them done in so many different colors on StampTV's Gallery. I used my Koh-i-noor Woodless Colour Pencils to color in the image along with some Odorless Mineral Spirits and Blending Stumps. I cut the image out using my nestabilities and mounted it on my card stock which I embossed with my Cuttlebug folder, Swiss Dots. My tag line was embellished with regular adhesive pearls and I used my Copic markers to color them to match my ribbon. Keeping white pearls on hand is always a plus. Thank you all who visit my blog and keep these flowers in your heart for they are from me to you. *hugs* Signature
