I cut the Iris and all it's layers at 4 inches from page 28.
Then I cut the background that is the Font 2 Layer on page 60 at 4.5 inches in Shimmer Gold from PaperTrey Ink. The shape seemed to mimic the Iris.
Then I cut it again at 5 inches in a green patterned paper from my stash.
I wanted another layer to place on my purple 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base. I couldn't find quite what I wanted so I heat embossed some gold stripes with a Stampin' Up stamp called Solid Stripes and Recollections Clear Gold Sparkling Embossing powder. I cut it at 5.25 x 5.25 inches and added it to my base card.
I ran a purple ribbon between the embossed layer and the green layer and tied a bow. I added both the Green and Shimmer Gold layers with foam tape to pop them up a little bit.
The more I look at it, the more it grows on me!
Thanks for coming by and y'all come back again soon,
