Flourishes Release Week Color Challenge


Thanks so much for joining me this afternoon for a little Flourishes fun.  Today we would love to have you join us for a color challenge.  Create a card using these colors. Upload it to the Flourishes blog under this challenge for a chance to win the entire set.  

I have a quick little tutorial for you today.  I created a little gift bag decoration using the new Make A Wish set.  I thought it was perfect for a little girl's birthday party or gift.   

Bag2.
These embellishments have become so popular and I thought of the Make A Wish set as soon as I saw them.  I have a quick little tutorial on how I created this..
 
Tut1.

First cut a 12 X 1 inch piece of designer paper for your ruffle.  Score it every 1/2 inch.
Accordian fold your strip of paper.  
 
Tut2.

Next I used Scor Tape to connect the two together.  Then I flattened it and glued it to the back of a circle I cut with my Spellbinders Circle dies and Grand Calibur. 
 
Tut3.

I then used my hot glue gun to adhere some ribbon to a Spellbinders  Classic Scalloped Circle I cut with my  Grand Calibur
Tut4a.

Then I hot glued all my layers together. I used Spellbinders Lacey Circle Dies to add my sentiment from the Make A Wish set. 
 
Tut4.

Now it is your turn.. Create a card using Pretty In Pink.  Upload your creation to the Flourishes Pretty In Pink challenge and you could be entered to win the New Release.  Deadline is Friday June 10th at 5 p.m. CST.
