Still Thinking of Spring

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. Awhile back I showed a card that had the title "Thinking of Spring", well I am still thinking of Spring! I want to show you a card I made with Sparkle N Sprinkle's new stamp set Iris Garden 687. When I taught school some of my children would bring me irises in the Spring. They smelled so good sitting on my desk.

I used the Die-Versions Gents Background die on a Super Adhesive sheet and then added Lacy Lilac glitter G1033 to it for the background. I loved using the Spellbinders Gold Majesty Circle die that I pop dotted in the center. I colored the irises using colored pencils and Gamsol and added Sparkling Snow glitter G1003 to them for dew drops. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Stunningly beautiful card! I love the irises and all that beautiful glitter! I would never have thought to use the Die-Versions Gents Background on a card like this, but it works perfectly! Love it! Thanks for playing along with us at Scrapy Land Challenge #11!
