February Release Week Challenge

This is my second post todayPlease scroll down for my A Day For Daisies post. Thanks!
 
Hi all and welcome to another fun-filled Friday here at Flourishes! Today we have a special surprise for you -- it's a one of a kind challenge where YOU pick the course of your challenge. That's right, it's.....

 If you play along, you could win our entire February release! That's right -- all three of our new stamp sets!! How do you play? Well, we are going to show you three different choices, and you need to pick one out of each three! So, let's get started! First up, we have three sketches....

Next, we have three color schemes....

And finally, we have three embellishments...
 

And now for my creation.  I chose to use the set Mix-n-Mugs and went with the first sketch.

My plan was to use the first color scheme as well, but I seem to have strayed a bit. I did use ivory and pink…but my lavender went to the aqua.  It was not intentional…I just flaked out and realized what I did too late, so I just went with it.  The image is stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.

All of the patterned paper is from MME Life of the Party and I used buttons as my embellishment, tying a bow in one using kraft jute.

Copic Collections used:

Lenten Rose CollectionNew Leaves Collection
Iced Aqua collection
Creamy Collection

So there you have it -- a kind of DIY challenge where every card could, in essence, be different! Doesn't that sound fun? If you need a little inspiration, it’s never far away with our design team’s creations! Hop on over and see…
Visit the Flourishes Blog for the Official Rules and have a great weekend!
