PPRS Monday Inspiration

Happy Monday bloggers! Back again with some inspiration using Prickley Pear Stamps and dies.
I've mixed it up today with my card. I took some artistic liberties with a stamp from the
 CLR027C Scalloped Oval 4 set & turned it into a large pot. Not what it was intended for I'm sure. But guess what? I like it! In my pot I put the new release FF0170 Bearded Iris. I didn't have a clue as how to color it so I went to the good old stand by "Google" and looked at pictures of many varieties.
The one I chose is called "Starship Enterprise" how cool is that? Loved the name so it made up my mind for me I guess. :) The sentiment I used is from the CLR013C Scalloped Oval & Circle 4 set & I nested it on top of a Cheery Lynn Mini Doily Die. I used the D042 Scalloped Oval Nesting Die Set and the D045 Flourish Die to make the background for my potted Iris after I fussy cut them out. The paper, ribbon, button & Candi are all from my stash of goodies.
Here's a close-up of my Iris and pot. The Copics I used to color them are listed below.
Copics used-
Pot- E37, 35, 31
Iris- R39, 85, 83
Y13, 11, 00, E53
C0, 00
Leaves- YG67, 63
