Today's Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge has a pay it forward theme. I thought a pretty flower card (no one should be surprised by this :-) ) and a 'have a nice day' sentiment would do the trick!
I have been looking at flowers on Pinterest and came across the most beautiful Iris I have ever seen. It was white, pink, and yellow with the best name ever, Starship Enterprise! You see, besides loving flowers, I love love love Star Trek! I know some people really hate it, but I have been a huge fan since I was a little girl. My dad used to travel for work, so sometimes my mom would let me sleep in her bed. She and I would watch old Star Trek episodes on a small black and white tv. From there a love for the series was born, so imagine my delight to see a beautiful flower adorned with just a fabulous moniker! Let me tell you, I will be planting lots of these in my yard for next spring!
Ok, so I know you want me to get to the point. I thought I would make my iris look like that beautiful iris with the wonderful name! I cut the flower out in white cardstock and then layered the color using mini pigment ink pads. I then added a little sparkle by using Star Dust glitz gel.
For this particular project, I used the Art Nouveau cartridge and the May stamp of the month.

|So sorry for the blurry picture. When I realized it was so blurry, it was far too late to retake the photo as it was dark. I used the May stamp of the month and a stamp set called Frame Flair.|
