Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well and that your day is full of sunshine!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge: One Layer!  A real challenge for me!!!  

Here is my creation using Iris (image)and Rose (sentiment) from ODBD.  I had so much fun dry embossing, coloring up the iris, scoring and adding some extra bling for some extra elegance and sparkle.

Oh, Chris, this is gorgeous! I love this iris, and it's really showcased beautifully with your lovely embossing, pearls/gems, and twine! Lovely coloring! This is perfect for this week's challenge, and I am so glad you were able to make it on the couch as you continue to heal. Praying for you, precious friend! Hugs!
