Today's card was made with this beautiful stamp that I received from the girls over at Dolce called Iris Frame from My Heart Stamps for You.

I had distress inks for quite some time before I knew that it stays wet enough to emboss with. I stamped the image with Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Colored the iris's with distress inks and a blender pen. I love how the flower is out of the frame , so I cut it out and popped it up with some EK 3D Dots.
This card had some pop added to it by added some Jewel Tones Perfect Pearls to the flower Blossoms. The centers of the iris's were stamped again, cut out and paper pieced on, adding Scattered Straw Distress Stickles for more dimension. I also added some Diamond Glaze on the leave for the dew drop and sponged the background for some contrast. To finish it off I added some Crystal Sticker Pearls.
