Birthday Challenge

With Flourishes celebrating their second birthday, they know their customers are worth their weight in gold! To get ready for our smash release in August, we wanted to set the scene by honoring our customers who we consider - royalty! 

HOW TO PLAY: Try to create a card fit for a king or queen! Use regal embellishments, a lavish paper, a beautiful image, glitz it up! Link your creation to the post on the
Flourishes Newsletter or upload to Splitcoast using the keyword FLLCAUG. You have until Friday, August 14th 10th at 5 PM Eastern to have your creation uploaded! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

WHAT YOU COULD WIN: All of our new releases that will be revealed starting next Wednesday, August 12th over on the Flourishes Newsletter.


Isn't the Lace Heart set pretty!  I think all the flourishes going through the heart, give it that little extra special touch.  I stamped the heart onto some classic ivory card stock, with Palette ink, and then colored in the image using Copic markers.  After, I colored in my image, I cut it out and then crumpled it up, then took a distressing tool and sanded the heart a little bit.  I mounted the heart onto the card stock using foam dots, to give it a little depth.  The Kaiser gems I used were originally clear, however I took the darkest Copic marker I was using, and colored the clear gems purple...isn't that cool!!  I love being able to perfectly match my embellishments to my projects.  The sentiment is from the Seaside Life stamp set, it just seem to fit with this theme.  For a finishing touch I added some May Arts silk ribbon, seriously this ribbon ties really really nice bows, and it feels so soft too!
