I made this card for JustRite's Botanical Bliss challenge, to use a flower and/or butterfly on your card.
I started out by stamping the frame from Botanical Medallions and Banners in purple ink on white cardstock. I die cut it out using the co-ordinating die (Nested Oval Medallions). I then stamped the iris from the same stamp set and die cut it out using an oval die from Spellbinders. I used a Versamark pen and dusted the image with Perfect Pearls. It turned out too pale, so I added more colour with markers. You can't see it in the picture, but there's a fantastic shimmer to the flowers.
I stamped another piece of white cardstock with Elegant Fronds and embossed it with a light green/aqua embossing powder. I then rubbed some purple and blue gelatos onto the unembossed sections.
I layered a piece of light purple ribbon on top of a darker shimmery ribbon, and wrapped it around the embossed panel. I glued the panel on a purple card base and then glued the medallion on top. The Iris panel was added with pop dots and a die cut butterfly glued to the side.
