Paper Dolls Challenge #31

Today, I'm playing along with Laurie's Paper Dolls Challenge. Hop on over to our blog and play too! There's plenty of time.

What I love about this challenge is it gets me to use one of my Year of Flowers sets. I have the entire series, but have only inked up a couple of the sets. For my card, I opted for the Year of Flowers: Mums.

I love all the PTI flower images. They are so beautiful and detailed whether they are colored in or left alone. For my card, I just stamped the images on colored cardstock and cut them out. I used my clear Spica pen to add some sparkle to the flower. 

It was a cloudy day when I took these pictures, but the sun came out for just a few seconds. Just enough time to take this picture that shows the sparkle. I think someone upstairs liked this card. :-)
