A Little Reminder.....

Hello dear friends: We are at the half way point on our The Flower Challenge #3, where we asked you to create a card using your older stamps or dies so, I'm here to remind you that you still have time to join us in the gallery with your creations.  I know it's a busy time of the year but this will give you a chance to create one more card for your Holiday card giving or for a birthday or just about any occasion. Here is my card, I used a very old stamp set from Flourishes that made it's debut back in 2010 called "Beauty Within", I hope you get a little inspiration from me and join us.

I love the images on this set, they look like stain glass windows. I stamped this one onto a panel of Strathmore multi media paper and colored it with my SU markers and an aqua painter. Since I don't have the die to cut this image, I just fussy cut it leaving a small border. 
The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, (sadly discontinued), the card stock and ribbon, from my stash, the sentiment is from the set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The flower is from the set and the sentiment from another old favorite from Flourishes called "Picking Wild Flowers" also from 2010.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate this more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Beautiful stained Glass image! Try this stamped on vellum, and colored behind please! I think it would be stunning as well! Now, love that darling little iris on the inside! What an interesting set, would love to see what else is accompanied with it! What a nice find in your Stash!

This card is so beautiful Maria, I remember when this stamp came out and I so wanted it but it never happened. You have coloured it to perfection. The full design is so eye catching.
