My Garden Inspiration #4~Just Add Ink Challenge #20 and Blogger Issues

Whew...finally back on blogger...it has been down for me for a few days...scarey...but I'm back now...so onto the new!!
One of my very favorite flowers in my garden are the "Iris's"....I know I say every flower is my favorite, but there is just something about an Iris that is so breath-takingly beautiful!!  They are so regal and delicate with the little ruffled edges...the colors are like no other.......I just wish they would stay in bloom all summer!!  I have lots of different species and add as many more each year as I can find....you will be seeing more of these in the weeks to come...I wish you all could see them "in real life" they are.....stunning!!
This card was made with a retired SU set called "Still Life Stems"...I colored it in  with my SU markers......also adding it to the Just Add Ink Challenge #20...stitching!!!...I did faux stitching on the Iris CS and machine stitching around the DS paper...see you tomorrow!!

Beautiful, beautiful! LOVE the lime green and purple together. Your stitching is lovely. Good on you for hauling out a machine, I cringe at the thought :-)
