The Classroom Flower Parade

Over at The Classroom, there is a Flower Parade going on. Since I love flowers, and I needed a birthday card, and I needed to get this new Karen Lockhart stamp inky, I decided to join in.

LOVE this stamp! I think orchids are just soooooo beautiful! I colored it with my copics and to add a bit of dimension, colored a second imprint of just the pot and leaves, cut them out and popped them up. I rounded the pot a bit from side to side and layered rolled up glue dots vertically under the center of the pot. The sentiment is from Make An Impression. Patterned paper is from Memory Box; cardstock is Gina K, Classic Crest and SU. Scallops are from a Fiskars border punch.

Take a look at all the other pretty cards in the Flower Parade through the link above to The Classroom and leave a little love.

Thanks for peeking!

So lovely! I love how you popped the flowerpot and your copic coloring is great. I can't get the hang of coloring with copics and am always in awe of people who can.
TFS!
