WALKING ON SUNSHINE

 Hi all, hope that you are all well and enjoying the weekend it is pouring with rain here so no gardening today
I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into some challenges.
I have been rummaging through my stamps again and found my sets of Morehead stamps, I have always loved these chubby little cuties, so I decided to use the Iris one.  I have always loved Iris's I remember as a little girl my mum had quite a few growing in the garden they were the ones I think they called bearded Iris the old fashioned ones, I do love old fashioned the older I get the more I reminisce about my time as a youngster, with my mum being of an age that she can't remember a lot of the old times I can and to me she has never changed she is still as beautiful as she has always been.
Anyway onto my card I stamped and coloured this image then fussy cut her out, with this stamp there are several little stamps so I used the Iris on it's own and cut them out, the papers are Bearly Mine, although they are no longer available I served on the DT for quite awhile and purchased all the CD's that were on sale so I will always have them at hand. 
I layered them onto black card stock, the central circle is die cut scalloped I mounted the image and flowers with 3d foam finally I added a sentiment and some liquid pearls.

Our Iris's (old fashioned ones) are just coming out Lorraine, we have a patch of pretty purple ones and in the front dyke there are yellow ones, we never planted those so strange how they suddenly appeared about five years ago.

A pretty creation today. Keep dry, they say tomorrow it's going to be 21deg but somehow I don't believe them.

A lovely little stamp and a beautiful design in pretty sunshine colours, you've made great use of the fabulous sketch too!
I used to love the times I spent sitting with my wonderful Mum, talking about the 'old days'- although she was immobile and bedridden at that time her mind was still sharp as a knife and she remembered everything! I really miss her.
