Fred She Said Paper Piercing design and colored iris for Janice's BD card

This is a card I made for Janice's birthday this year.  My mind was completely blank and everything I thought of I just could not find everything I needed to make it and suddenly this popped into my head!  The paper pricking around the corners and the purple iris are from Fred She Said site from two separate designs. The corners actually go with the rose but I took it out and replaced it with the iris because Janice and I exchange iris bulbs when either of us get something different.  The site for the iris is: http://fred-she-said-store.blogspot.com/2012/06/bearded-iris.html and is already colored and ready for use. The site for the paper pricking is: http://fred-she-said-store.blogspot.com/2012/03/diamond-rose-with-pp-pattern.html.  The white paper is Georgia Pacific from Walmart and the purple is Recollections.  The shiny paper trimming the card front and the iris diamond is holographic paper that I love and try to buy when I find it in a store.  I don't care for the self adhesive kind and prefer to use the thicker.  I punched the holes with a push pin and the holographic paper underneath sparkles thru. I hope Janice will be happy with the card and I am just happy that I actually made something!!
