Purple Iris

                          This lovely image is from Digi Doodle Shop.  I colored it with Copics.  The papers are from Fairy Flora.  I need to buy another paper pad before I run out.  The swirly die is a new one from Magnolia.  It was really hard to find in stock anywhere, but I was very persistent!  The ribbon is self sticking and came from my daughter's stash.  It's the first time I've used it, but I really like it.  I don't imagine it would be good for a bow since it has adhesive on the back.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  I used it for a very lazy reason.  It was still laying on my craft table when I finished my last card.  It was easier to use it rather than go get another one.  I do like it on this card, though.    I decided to go with another easel card.  I really enjoy this style.                                                                                                                                                                                      I am entering this in the following challenges:                                         Sparkle Forum Challenges Punch It                                                               One stitch at a Time Use a Digi                                                                        Hooked On Crafts Spring has Sprung

Whoa! This is just stunning. Love those colors. Looks more like a painting than a card. Very nicely done!
