Sweet Iris



It had been so long since doing a straight forward decoupage card that I actually enjoyed making this one. I used Stampin Up Design Paper for the background and used one of there punches for the leaves, Labels 4 Nestabilities and a contrasting ribbon, some little pearls and a dragonfly charm and a bit of love to bring it all together.


So Many have asked where the decoupage image has come from, well I have to say I cheat lol! it is one of the new Nice'n'Easel sheets by La Pashe I just cut it part out for my card.

That looks so neat. I think if I ever get the business tax stuff done and the quilt tied, I might start making cards again!!
