Flowers for You...

Happy Wednesday!

It's been a while since I've taken part in a challenge, and I love challenges!
Decided to participate in the "Flowers for You" challenge at Impression Obsession today.
When I checked my I-O drawer, it had very little in the way of flowers, so I improvised with embossed flowers, and the gorgeous bird complete with flower.

Impression Obsession Bird Collage 4 (#E13046), Impression Obsession Joyful Spring (#B5428), Spellbinder's Labels 28 Dies, Cuttlebug Embossing Border, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Copic Markers, Pearls, Glossy Accents


I stamped the flower several times, and just kept adding layers until it was popped up enough to suit me, and then generously applied some Glossy Accents for a bit of happy shine.  Wow, my pinks match very well here in real life - not so much, on the big screen!

I'll be entering this card here:

Impression Obsession Challenge - 'Flowers for You'
Through the Craftroom Door - 'Anything Goes'
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - 'Anything Goes'


Thanks for stopping by!
Patti J.
