Show your feminine side

Feminine Flair Challenge Graphic
Lace, pearls and flouncy ribbons - these are the things that make up a creation with a truly feminine flair. That's what is at the heart of this month's Flourishes challenge.  To enter, let's see how you add a dose of femininity to your cards or creations! Link your project up here and if you upload to SCS, please use the key word FLLCDEC11. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't please play anyway! The winner will receive our entire December release. You have until December 16 at 5 PM Eastern time to submit.
I realize that my card is not the most feminine…but I did use lovely trims from the Lace and Trim set…and lots of glitter of course!  Back by popular demand, this lovely stamp set will add a touch of elegance to any creation and you can get it now for an incredible price! Check it out here!
I also used the Evergreen from Forest of Trees.  I stamped several times in Cottage Ivy (Dew Drop) from Memento, stamping off to get lighter images in the background.  The sentiment is from the Sentimental Christmas set.  I stamped the pom pom fringe from the Lace and Trim set on the dark green cardstock that I used to mat the main image panel on in white pigment ink and then embossed with Detail White embossing powder.  Then I added white flock to the pom poms.  I just love this sweet trim!  It adds a nice detail without any bulk.   I also stamped the large lace image in Cottage Ivy on the inside of the card.    The patterned paper is from Cosmo Crickets Mini Deck called Dear Mr. Santa. 
Please visit all of our design team members below for wonderful samples using this Lace and Trim set.  Then head over to the Flourishes blog to join us in the December challenge!
