Razzle Dazzle Iris




Betty has a challenging combo of colors for today's SCS Color Challenge: Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron & neutral of our choice. Dessert option was to use a stencil, but I couldn't work it in, so opted to skip dessert. I used Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the layout. After I had it together, I looked at the sketch again and saw there should have been another panel! I'm hoping the challenge police won't come after me! I colored the image with Copics...the rest of the card is layered Nesties with a saffron panel that was CB'd using the herringbone EF. 35 years ago, my husband and I had just gotten married at 7 p.m. and we would have been on our way to the hotel about now...man I'm feeling old about now! LOL!

STAMPS: Siberian Iris (Flourishes)
PAPER: My Mind's Eye Home DP (Photo Mat Blue), Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: CB, Herringbone EF, Nesties, Copics, Kaiser Gold pearls, Marvy corner scallop rounder, SU scallop border punch

Great card, Wanda, and I love how you used Mercy's sketch, even without the extra panel :D Great flower and wonderfully coloured! Congrats on 35 years of marriage!! You must have started young! Such a wonderful anniversary to hear about especially in a world that takes marriage so lightly now. Cheers to another 35!
