"Iris" Eye's Are Smiling...

I have entered this card into's Monday already. My...don't the weeks just fly by?  Monday's... I always try to have another card for you stampers to view. Today I wanted to give you two posts to view rather than one. Be sure to look at "Pretty In Pink" (below this post).  I hope these two cards today will give you more inspiration of your own.   I know I find great inspiration when browsing other stampers blog sites and viewing their lovely cards and pictures they post. 

Notice that I water colored  the Iris in a pretty deep blue and spritzed it when done coloring my flower with my (Pearl Ex Powder mixture) and sprayed it lightly with a green color of Pearl Ex with my Mini Mister from Ranger.  I also used my sponge dobber with light blue ink to give color around the outer edge of the flower before spraying.  (I liked the effect it gives).  I also added the cute little butterflies to give it a feminine feeling as well as lace on this card along with my Fleur De Lis die cut for each corner. I used pretty blue, pink and green flowered background paper.  And I couldn't forget the pearls to add.  Something about pearls...they help make the card. 

 I'm smiling....just like the title for this card.
