Free For All Friday

Hi everyone and welcome to a Flourishes Free for All! 
To start off my weekend, this is what I created.
I started with Deconstructed Sketch #94

I stamped the single tulip from Tulips for Friends onto Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics.  I then used Classic Ovals to cut it out and Lacey Ovals for the mat, both from Spellbinders.

I stamped the sentiment over the flower and with the die still in place, I sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.   All of the paper is from Market Place by MME and after cutting it to size I inked around the edges with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I used a piece of burlap ribbon and a flower from Petaloo, that I distressed with ink, and a double bow made with kraft jute to finish it off.
Today is the last day to get the Flourishes March New Release Bundle at 10% off!
Now, go check out the great samples from our design team, and have a great weekend!

    You're so good at these sketch challenges. Every time I see one of these Deconstructed Sketches I want to play along, but I can never eke out the time. I'm always working on something I started days ago. Such is life! This is beautiful. I love how you used the paper and the burlap and how you made the image and the sentiment fit the sketch. You're such a pro!
