I love the movement in the design on the new Build-A-Flower: Bearded Iris Layering Stamp & Die Set. What better way to showcase the flower than in a colorful clean and simple card.

I am using Shades of Purple Crisp Dye Ink Set and Nature's Wonders Crisp Dye Ink Set to create the florals. In order to emphasize the color of the flowers, I am creating a colorful label (Nesting Labels Die Set and Sea Shore Crisp Dye Ink Set) for the background of the card.
