Mother's Day Iris

Good Friday everyone! I'm bringing you a card for several challenges. It's my DT card for the Raise the Bar Challenge to create a Mother's Day card. My mother and MIL have both passed away, but I still love to create cards for co-workers who need them! This is also for the Paper Sundae's Mother's Day challenge and it uses Karen Giron's great Sweet Sunday Sketch.  Right now, irises are blooming everywhere in VA, so I went with this older set from Flourishes called Siberian Iris...colored with Copics, fussy cut and popped over the BG.  I'm entering this into Flourishes' Bring Back Beautiful challenge for May where we're to highlight a fave flower on our card.

Be sure and stop by the Raise the Bar blog to see what the other bartenders have to inspire you!  We hope you can play along with us!

STAMPS: Siberian Iris (Flourishes)
PAPER: DP by Recollections (Michael's), Pacific Point, White, X-Press It Blending Card.
INK: Pacific Point
ACCESSORIES: Picot Circle and Circle Nesties, Square lattice EF by SU
COPICS: B02, B04, B05, B06, YG00, YG03, YG06, Y15.
