Irises in Full Bloom, Image by Sandi's Samples

Over at "Through the Craftroom Door" Challenge blog we have Sandi's Samples as our guest sponsor. I choose this beautiful image to work with because I currently have purple Irises in my back yard just blooming away. It was a surprise to us because we moved into our house last July so this is the first time we have lived here through the spring season. 

Here is one of our beautiful Irises in our back yard! I used this as inspiration when making the card below. 

 A closer look at the coloring which was all done with Copic Markers.
Materials Used:
Paper scraps believe it or now ;-)
Spellbinders Dies
Sizzix Dies
Copic Markers G05, G07, G09, Y15, Y17, BV11, BV13, BV17
