Beautiful blue Irises in Bloom :)

Hello dear friends!  Today I bring you my final Sweet and Sassy card ~ it has been an absolute joy and honor to be a Guest Designer this month :)  Thank you so much Korin (and Lisa - you are an amazing woman!) for this most blessed opportunity to serve at SNSS!


I hope you've had the chance to view the Birthmonth Flowers collection at SNSS ~ if not, take a look hereThey are amazing stamps and I am already anxiously anticipating the months to follow!  I bring you the Iris stamp once again (the March flower is soon to make it's blog debut!) only this time I colored it in shades of blue with my prismamarkers.  Did you know that the one of the most striking colors of an iris bloom is blue?! There are very few true blue flowers, and the blue iris is one of them!

This was my first attempt at an easel card - bwahahahaha!   {Can you  believe this card took me 4 hours *eek!*  I was even on the phone with my wonderful friend Judy last night telling her "I'm still working on it - 4 hours later!" LOL!}  But it's really special - it's everything I wanted it to be and maybe a little more :*)
For the inside, I used the Love of a Friend stamp set, which is visible when the card opens or you rest it further back :)


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today - Blessings to you!
