Bold Hibiscus

Today I thought I would show you a card I made using the Happy Hour stamp set from Firecracker Designs. Isn't this Hibiscus just beautiful? When I first stamped this, I wasn't quite sure what color a Hibiscus flower even was. After a Google search I learned that they come in almost ever color under the sun, check out some great photos HERE! These flowers are just beautiful! I decided to go with some bold red and yellow. This card actually looks much better in real life-it isn't quite as Ronald McDonaldy looking as it seems in this picture. If you are a follower of my blog you know that this card layout is one of my favs. I think this is the 4th card I've posted on here in the last 8 months using this layout, LOL.
Supplies used: Happy Hour stamp set from FCD, thank you sentiment from Inkadinkado, SU CS, Prismacolor markers, Art Institute black glitter, misc. ribbon, Primas leaf, Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

The hibiscus is one of my favorite flowers. I have two potted ones on my porch, I don't know if I'll be able to kep them alive over the winter, but if they die, I'll buy new ones, they are soooo pretty. Your card is stunning too!!!
