Flourishes Celebration Day One


Flourishes has been waiting to officially unveil its new home
on the web for months and this week we're kicking off five
days of fun and games to celebrate the big event!

For my card I chose the Sweet Violet set available at the Flourishes
Store..check it out HERE.  I colored it with the Crocus Copic Collection
for the flowers and the  Green Grass Copic Collection for the leaves.
I colored two stamped images and then added some layers by cutting
out my flowers and leaves.


Today's challenge is a bit sketchy – literally. hostess 
and Flourishes artist Becky Fleck (link www.pagemaps. com
whipped up a special sketch just for our celebration! Use it 
for your own creation, leave a link over at THIS POST on the
Flourishes blog and you could  walk away the winner of our day
one drawing for a goody bag  from Flourishes (it's a fun-filled surprise!).
If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword FLLCCEL1. 
You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards!

Go take a peek at what the rest of the Design team created.. You
are sure to be inspired.
