Flourishes Galore

I have finished my cards for the Flourishes Challenges, the first being the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, there we had a Sketch Challenge this week by Cindy Haffner. I used the Limited Edition Set that I was sent from Flourishes as part of their Royal Court - Beauty in Nature, and so rightly named too! I embossed the images and layered them onto Memory Box paper, running a strip of torn embossing behind it. I added a sentiment from PTI and some mini pearls to finish off - so very easy!

My next card is for the September Release - The Feel of Fall - where we able to play for the four new sets that are being released - wouldn't that be amazing to win!! I love the Flourishes images and was happy to be able to ink these ones up for the first time today! I embossed the main image and used a small circle punch to do the ticketed corners, sponging around the edges and layering onto Truly Thyme Card Stock! The main CS is from Memory Box, as is the DP strip...the scalloped edge is embossed . All edges have seen sponged because I LOVE TO SPONGE!! LOL! I added the punch at the top and used a large eyelet, which I attached with my Crop-a-dile.

So there you have it, these cards were very easy and came together so quickly...it just goes to show that you don't have to spend hours to get a great result - in saying that, I usually do spend hours on a card and I like doing that - it is all part of the process for me!

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment, I know it all takes time but you bring this gal from 'Down Under' a lot of pleasure when you do!! I am off to get a few things done as my Mum and sister arrive on Sunday - only 2 sleeps for us...it is getting so exciting...the most important job is done -getting my hair decent! LOL! See you soon - you know I won't stay away too long - I am addicted! LOL! God bless you!
