Cracked Glass Iris

To read all about my experimentation with cracked glass, go here. I took the challenge from Pink Piggy-cracked glass and combined it with a sketch from MamiDoodles (it is inverted, but I think that still counts) to come up with this creation.
I decided the sentiment needed a bit of "crackedness" as well, hence the crinkling and inking. I'm really pleased with how this cracked glass piece turned out. It might be my favorite out of all the ones I did today (see experimentation link above to view the rest of them).

Challenges:
Pink Piggy-cracked glass
Mami Doodles-sketch (inverted)
Lots To Do -butterflies or insects
Wild Orchard- Make it Sparkle (sparkles in the stickles, embossing powder on the image and the background paper)
Stamp Something-Something Cute
Sentimental Sundays-Clean and Simple
One Stop Craft Challenge-Sentiment
DigiDoodle Shop -Sentiment
