Iris Valentine


Happy Thursday!  When I saw this week's sketch challenge from My Favorite Things (MFTWSC55), I thought I would  give it a try, and combine the sketch with some other fun challenges. 

Since I wanted to make a Valentine in non-traditonal colors, I used the Iris set by Doodle Pantry for my Valentine.  I combined the pre-colored image and one of the sentiments from this set;  and pulled the colors from the Iris for the color theme of amethyst, white and dark yellow.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges
Pixie Dust Studio -- Going dotty -- use polka dots on your card or project

Thank you for stopping by to see what I've been working on. Have a great day and Happy Crafting!!
