YELLOW IRIS AND MAY BLOSSOM

 Hi all, thank you for the lovely comments that you have left for me on my previous posts, I am hoping to catch up with you all over the next couple of days but this bug has drained me quite alot, however, I have managed to sit quietly and make this card that I would like to share with you and enter into a few challenges:
I have used one of my Morehead Clear stamp sets that I bought many moons ago from a company in Sweden which is where I got all my Morehead stamp sets from.
I used this one because she is holding a yellow Iris, I have loads of them in bloom in my front garden, hence my choice of colour.  There are quite a few little stamps in the set and I used the Dragonfly everything has been stamped using Versafine Sepia ink, including the 'May Blossom' flowers that I recently bought from C&C they are the Dreamees Flower stamps, I only added a hint of colour to the centres and stamens, I cut them out and curled them with the finger/thumb technique it gives a softer curl.
The papers are LOTV and have been mounted onto SU brown card, I also added some lace, stamped sentiment and some punched hearts for the leaves.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting I hope to see you later or over the next few days until then take care.
