Friday Fun with Flourishes!

I love Fridays! But who doesn’t, right?  Today is a free for all on Flourishes and also the Christmas Spirit Challenge on SCS.

CSC 15

I chose the cardinal from the Christmas Classics set from Flourishes.  It’s stamped on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics.

I found this great vintage looking Christmas paper in my stash from My Minds Eye.  I used a Versa Magic Dew Drop in Aspen Mist to sponge around the image and also the Ribbon Tags Trio  from Spellbinders.   The mat behind the image was cut with a Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles die.   I had this great red crinkly ribbon in my stash that I used to run through the tag die and make a bow.   A few pearls and done!

Join in the challenge here on SCS.  Use FLLCNOEL15 keyword on your creation!

Barbara Anders has a wonderful banner tutorial on the Flourishes blog today so head over there and check it out!

These ladies below also have creations to share!  Have a great weekend and a very Happy Independence Day!

OMGoodness, Danielle, this is gorgeous! Is the sleigh image part of your paper, or is it a stamp? All of your card is just stunning!

I'm loving this red, white, and blue Christmas card! You girls are showcasing a fabulous variety on this theme. You've made these colors into a very warm and inviting card, and that's quite an accomplishment. Very beautiful, Danielle!
