Flourishes October sneaks begin

Good morning everyone and welcome to the first October sneak peek from Flourishes!  Today I have a card to show you using the new Holiday Sparkle set.
As you are reading this I am already in Florida on vacation.  It’s a small family reunion of sorts with my husbands family and we are taking the kids to Disney World and Universal.  It’s supposed to rain all week, so keep your fingers crossed that it’s not so bad that we can’t enjoy the rides and halloween in the Magic Kingdom!
On to my card…

This set is full of vintage Christmas ornaments…just like I remember on my grandma’s tree when I was little.   I have several mercury glass ornaments myself and my Santa’s  are my favorites!  I stamped both the pine branch and Santa on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored them with Copics.   Then they were cut out and popped up on the decorative paper from the Basic Grey Jovial pad.   I sprayed the sentiment panel as well as the pine branch and Santa with Glimmer Mist and it has a really pretty sheen to it.  I used Crystal Effects and Diamond Dust along the edges of the panel and it’s really sparkly!
Hopefully you can see some of the sparkle in the picture below.
