Flourishes Friday Festive Challenge – Winter White

This Flourishes Friday is all about the crisp and clean winter white – dress it down with a monochromatic theme or dress it up with a sparkly flair. It’s up to you! The only requirement is dressing your favorite Flourishes set in winter white! If you want to play along, simply leave a comment HERE (on the Flourishes blog) or upload your card to Splitcoast using the keyword FFFC02.  Keep in mind, we’ll be doing this fun Friday challenge all month long and there will be a special drawing for those that play all four weeks! Details on what is up for grabs — to come!! If you are just joining us – track back to the first Flourishes Friday challenge on the first Friday of this month. You can make up past challenges to qualify for the giveaway!

My card today is white and gold.  I took one of the elements from the Flourished Elements set – the flourished oval – and stamped it eight times in a circle and embossed.  It created such a pretty pattern in the center that I took my craft knife and made cutouts so that you could see through to the embossed panel below.  I then embellished with pearls, ribbons and the Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio and called it a day.

There’s a lot going on at Flourishes this week with three new releases just waiting for you to take a peek!  Curious??  Take a look here at these three new beauties – stop off with the Design Team Members to see what they have created. 

Now, take a fabulous blog hop to see the wonderful creations the the other Friends of Flourishes have made for the Festive Flourishes Friday Challenge!

    Another winning card. I envy and admire your artistic mind and eye to come up with daring and innovative designs. After viewing your cards all this past year, I’m convinced that you are slated to go on to greater and finer works of art in the future. Don’t know what you have going on in the back burner but these card designs that you keep coming up with are really just the tip of the iceberg of a challenging future in designing. Your cards always leave me excited, inspired, drooling and breathlessly waiting to see what you’ll be presenting next. Next to yours, my cards are in the high school level…..not too surprising since I’m a retired hs art teacher. mercy.ReplyCancel

    Well, for Heaven’s sake, Becca! I honestly had to click on your Flourishes’ link to see the stamp you created this with. I knew the oval you referred to…I have this set and have used it many times but, for the life of me I couldn’t envision how it could wind up looking like this! Oh, my goodness gracious! How many times can you outdo yourself? I’m breathless with wonder. Your blog is well named. Bravo!ReplyCancel
