Flourishes Friday Focus

Flourishes SCS

This week's Friday Focus over at Flourishes was a challenge from Laura.. 
We all wanted you to see how beautiful this new set called Beauty Within can be used.  
It coordinates with the Spellbinder dies but I chose to use mine without.  

This week Beate had shown a tutorial over on the Flourishes Newsletter and I just loved the spotlighting she did.  I thought I would use it here on this set.  The heart is perfect for the sentiment.  

I used the small rose stamp that comes in this set on the inside and then also behind my main panel.   This beautiful ribbon is also from Flourishes May Arts Checked Ribbon.

Check out what the rest of the team did  with this awesome set:
The gallery over at Flourishes is full of awesome samples.. Check it out HERE too.  
I have entered this also over at Splitcoaststampers for today's challenge which
is ribbon and bows and last week's challenge on Friday which was spotlighting.

    23. Hi Dawn~

      I love this look on the cards! Can you please tell me, Did I miss a day when you described how to get the stained glass look? I'm glad you showed an example without a machine being used, I only have a cricut and a cuttlebug. If you explained the technique in another day, will you please let me know which one?

      Thanks,
      He IS Able,
