Card measures 5X5. On the Concord Crush I stamped in versa mark and heated with white powder the Dutch Iris Frame. On another piece of white I stamped the Dutch Iris Oval, colored it and cut it out. Then I stamped the Dutch Iris Medley, colored it and cut it out, using small pop ups attached it to the oval. Using larger pop ups attached it to the frame. Attached ribbon down the left side then attached it to the card base. Yellow Stickles was added to finish the card.
Okay, that's it for now. Gotta hit the shower and get to work. I think the rain has stopped for now anyway so that's better, yall have a great wonderful day. God Bless!!!

This is gorgeous and I love Iris, may have to go get this one. The background with the white embossing is so pretty and like how there is the 3D affect. How funny you have a tax fur baby and mine is a St. Patrick's Day, just a month apart, I can remember his birthday, can't remember Noel's just around Christmas :)
