Flourishes Friday Focus


Stacy is starting a brand new challenge over at Flourishes..
Each month we are going to be challenging you to use your Flourishes
Stamps for a fun Christmas. CHECK IT OUT HERE..Christmas IN April.

Starting May 1st Flourishes will be doing a once-a-month challenge to
get you in gear for your Christmas cards long before Christmas arrives.

For the card above I used the new set Spring Bouquet.  I colored
it three times and then cut it out using the Spellbinders Labels 12
die available at Flourishes.
I chose the Flourishes Copic Collection sets:  Buttercup  Green Grass,  
Crocus and Sweet Pea. This amazing May Arts Apple Green Ribbon 
is also available at Flourishes.  I love this set.  It has so many great
sentiments with it.

I am also adding this to the Stampin Sister's In Christ Challenge #35.
Create a card with flowers..

This second card is from the newly released Hats Off To You. 
I chose the Webster's Fine Art designer paper.  I thought it
was perfect with all the letters in it. I stamped the image onto
Now do you want to see some gorgeous Christmas cards.. Check
out what the design team has in store.  
Cindy and Laura both have some terrific cards with the new release.  Check them out here:
