Iris by Ching-Chou Kuik

Hi lovely peeps!  This is my DT card which I made for Ching-Chou Kuik's monthly Facebook challenge.
  She also has a blog challenge.
  This week, the design team members were asked to create a card with "Dots and/or Stripes".  This is what I came up with:

This beautiful image is Ching-Chou Kuik's "Iris", and is found here:
  What a beauty she is!  Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils were used to colour this lovely image.  Since I love to make flowers, the iris and the other flowers are handmade.  I wish you a happy week.  Lori xx
