Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 126

It is time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  Cindy is challenging us to Embossing either wet/dry.  I decided to use one of my horribly neglected Embossing Folders.  I love the way it makes the white ledger paper look.

The Iris was not so easy for me to color.  I just about went blind trying to color the small spaces.  I think age is starting to set in.  I might need glasses for my coloring.  Sad!  This flower comes from A Year In Flowers2.


I used Chupa's sketch over at Sketchbook Saturday.  Her sketches are AWESOME!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the designers have created for you.

I think the iris is such an elegant flower - tall and stately in the garden! These are just wonderful, brilliant colouring. Love the layout too.

I love what you did with the Irises. the whole look of the card is cheerful. I had to breakdown and buy some readers so I can see small print and do coloring. It took me 48 years, but it did happen.
