Sweet Stamps- Color challenge and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is a color challenge- Pink, Green and Brown:
 I am in love with floral images.....so I had to go with the gorgeous Iris from Sweet Stamps  : )   I stamped the image with Memento black Tuxedo ink and colored it with Copics.  I added a touch of Sakura Gelly roll pen for a touch of shimmer- just a touch...... Then, I fussy cut  out my flower.  The image is in a frame made by an Embossing Folder and highlighting the raised portion with Brownie Shades Die ink. 
  
Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Iris Floral image HERE
Memento Black Tuxedo Ink HERE
Copic Markers HERE
Just for You Sentiment HERE
Brownie Shades Die ink HERE
Nellie Snellen Embossing Folder Oval Frame  HERE
Sentiment die is from the die cut set HERE

What a gorgeous card to mark the New Year on your blog! Like you, I am in love with floral stamps. It's hard for me to resist buying them all of the time! LOL So, of course I will go and check out their site. This is a wonderful color combo and your embossed and tinted frame is a perfect setting for such an elegant image of Irises. Your coloring is always perfect, the whole effect is stunning! Happy New Year and blessings for you and your family.

Love the aged look of your card. Beautiful coloring on the Iris. Love how you layered the embossing folder on the card and added ribbon with the sentiment.
