Iris Garden

Hello there and a big welcome to my blog! Thank you so much for calling by and also the lovely comments you leave.  I am back from London quite exhausted after playing Pirates, rugby and running races lol!! Boys never seem to want to just sit down and colour!

Onto my card today its is from the new releases at Beccy's called Iris Garden:

Now I don't know what my camera was playing at but all the purples do match on the card its just that the camera, which supposedly never lies, decided to show them all as different!  The Papers are Nitwits and I have used the sentiment that comes with the set.  For my card base I used Cheery Lynn Reflections Mini Pearl Square Mega Doily (quite a mouthful).  I cut the image out with Dienamics Stitched Rectangles and used Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles to mat.  The sentiment was cut and matted using Dienamics Fishtail Stax.  Ribbon and flower from my stash.

Challenges I would like to enter:

ABC - D is for Diecuts
Creative Craft Cottages - In the Garden

Well that's all from me for today. Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful day!

Hi Suzie,

Glad you had an enjoyable, though exhausting, time.

I am happy you mentioned the colour as the image shows the backing papers as Brown on my PC instead of Purple lol! The Iris is beautiful, beautiful shading on the petals.

love & hugs

Cameras always lie Susan, not only with the colours but the over all picture of our creations, mine always look better in real life BUT this is a gorgeous one. Love the new image from Beccy. Colours and papers suit perfectly. My girl is a bit sore from her op but is happy eating and glad to be home...results in around 5 days so here's hoping....she looks too healthy to be sick.xx
