Here are the cards   made with the Bearded Iris set.   


I am not sure what this type of card is called,  my friend, Sue,  showed me how to make them last year when she came to visit. I  guess it is a spotlight technique.

  5. Thrilled to see how wonderfully you made these cards!! The colors and placement of the butterflies is absolutely perfect! Brought back the fond memory I have of making my VERY FIRST CARD at my DIL's, nearly 10 years ago, but your butterflies are so much prettier than mine!! I think the technique is called Reverse Spotlighting (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/reverse_spotlighting/)
    Great job! I am duly impressed!!
