This beautiful iris stamp is one I picked up at a stamp store several years ago. The simpleness of it is what I was first attracted to with this one. My base card is a retired color from Stampin' Up! called Pink Passion, or was it Passion Pink? I am not sure right now but I know those 2 words were part of it. Anyway, I attached a sheer ribbon around the card front, tying it in a not. That is all the extra I did for this one. Sometimes, I think simple elegance is the way to go with a card.
As for my flower, I stamped it with StazOn ink and colored it in using Stampin' Up! markers. I then used a glue I bought especially for glitter to out line the flowers. Now you may be wondering how I got the lines so thin. Well, this glue happened to have a tip you could by for it that allows you to draw extremely thin lines to add glue to. It gave just a hint of added detail to the flower without going overboard. The glitter I used is the Dazzling Diamond glitter from SU!. Then inside simply has "With Deepest Sympathy" stamped on it. I made sure to leave enough room so I could write a special note.
I do realize this post is kind of short. I am hoping to have more time to blog tomorrow. Honestly, I suffer from migraines and I have a big one today. So now I am going to go take my medicine and lay down. Thanks for dropping by today and I will see you tomorrow.
