Flourishes LC Friday Blog Hop

Hello Flourishes Friends! Welcome to another Flourishes LC October Challenge  - I hope you enjoyed the projects that were shared with the New Release - and are ready for more inspiration today. Thank you for the lovely comments you made - each one was read and appreciated!  This week Tricia has challenged us to use patterned paper on our cards!  If you have come from Beverly's Blog you are in the right place, if not, please go to the Flourishes Blog and start from the beginning.  Please join us welcoming new designer Barb Thompson to our Team

I have used the image from the  Winter Blooms illustrated by Beverly Cole.

  I have stamped the Poinsettia onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured them using Chameleon Art Pens. It has been fussy cut/ hand cut out and popped up on to Christmas Stocking card base, using  3D Foam Squares onto a Die-cut, 

I have used Joyous by Authentique Paper which is available in the Flourishes LC Store.  I have highlighted the branches using a Gold Gel Pen, but is hard to see in the photo; red rhinestones have been added to create 'faux quilting'.  Finishing off with Gold Thread and a Christmas Bell.  Nice and easy and that Poinsettia is definitely the star.  This would be a very easy card to mass produce for those who are looking for something a little different this year.

Be sure to visit the other designers' pages today, your next stop is Naomi's Blog, then go shopping at Flourishes!
