Flourishes February Release Challenge


It’s almost time for another Flourishes release and so we kick it off with a challenge! Februarys release challenge is to create a card containing black, white, and one color. That’s it. Simple, huh? You have until next Friday February 9th at 5pm. Use keyword FLLCFEB12 on your creation. You need to link your creation to the Flourishes blog post…so pop over for all of the details!
I decided to pull away from Valentine’s Day creations for a moment and head over to St. Patricks Day.

I used an image and sentiment from the Irish Blessing stamp set, stamping on Flourishes Classic White card stock. The image was colored with Copic markers and lightly sponged around the image panel with London Fog ink from Memento. The patterned paper is from the MME Lost and Found, Rosy paper pad. The ribbon is May Arts Faux Suede ruffle edge which I added a couple of buttons and bakers twine to.
The design team has lots of inspiration so make sure you pay each of them a visit!

WOW, love the black mat with the cool lacey edge. I am usually at a loss for St Patricks cards. Still I like the excuse to make cards. :) Have a fabulous Friday, hugs....

This is terrific Danielle. I forgot about this set. The added buttons and punched edge are great embellishments for this set.

Green for your extra colour, how smart! I'm loving the black border you have at the edge of your focal point; the buttons too! Great card!!
