Coveted Iris

Morning everyone and hope you find the time to join our new challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun,which is "No pink or red"Our sponsors are---Bugaboo Stamps,Faery Ink,The Art of Ronnie B.Barton and Oak Pond Creations-whose image I chose "Iris"coloured with promarkers.I have a few of these plants in my garden and one is the most delicate shade of blue which I love -but none of my colours came remotely near,so I chose this colour which is one I really covet lol,now this Iris is shades of bronze(yes I know it looks pinky in the pic BUT believe me it's not on my card lol)a couple of die-cuts/liquid pearls from stash,cardstock from Papermill Direct and B.papers are Tattered lace craft mag freebie.My Son (tattoo artist) was not happy with my colouring said it lacked perspective!(he will have to give me some colouring lessons)

The first thought that struck my mind was 'Burberry', I love that pattern and colors. Beautifully colored image, and with this design it works equally well for a man as for a woman...
