Single Iris

It's a special challenge at 
TIME OUT Challenges
TIME OUT Challenges
It's a birthday celebration for a very sweet lady.
The challenge is for 
CAS with the optional twist of purple.
Sandie is such a sweetheart and I had to join in.
Happy Birthday, Sandie!

This was done with Penny Black's Single Iris stamp that was inked with markers.

This is one of my favorite stamps as it's easy and offers a big impact.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Bonnie, this card makes me want to run right out and get this stamp. HOw gorgeous this is especially in deep purple. Such a rich contrast. It's also so neat and clean.

A big impact and a beautiful card! Love that gorgeous iris and the sequins you added too. My very last iris just finished blooming. Hated to see it end since they were so pretty this year.

Bobby said...

Big impact is right, Bonnie. I love that iris and it's matching mat.

Hi Bonnie,
wonderful CAS card. Great coloring technique, I love the image that stworzyaś. It is very subtle and elegant, in spite of strong colors.

This is a beautiful, timely card. A lovely birthday card and timely because they are in bloom right now. My neighbor has them lining his fence and they look so colorful.

Susan said...

That is CAS perfection, Bonnie! And I love your placement of the sequins - something I find hard to get right!

Greta said...

Gorgeous, Bonnie! I have that stamp, but it almost never gets used. Thanks for the reminder!
