Simple Spring Iris

Brrr!! It almost felt like winter again this week, but is definitely warming up again.  Today was beautiful and loved looking in my back yard at all the flowers blooming.  Especially some giant Irises.  Gorgeous!! 

Today’s card is a very simple card inspired by those irises.  The image is Stained Glass Iris from SparkleN Sprinkle.  It is colored with markers and covered with Starfire glitter, using a strip of Tear-ific tape.  I layered this on a punched yellow border with Impulsive Purple glitter framed by score lines and embossing.  The coordinating purple layer and yellow card base really help to accent the image.  The perfect card for so many different occasions.  For full details on this card go here.
