Flourishes Friday!!!!!

Hello everyone!!!!! It is Flourishes Friday!!!!! Wow!!!! I love this Poinsettia and Boxwood set from Flourishes, LLC. I tried my hand at watercoloring it and decided it did not look half bad. If you are wanting a really awesome flower to practice watercoloring with, this is it. It is big enough to work with. I stamped and color my poinsettia three times. I then stamped some leaves and colored those. I cut everything out and coated each layer with a very thin application of crystal effects. I used the little corner flourish from Flourishes Flourished set. I love this set. It has so many different flowing pieces that just work with everything. I finished my card assembly and added gold domes in verying sizes and finished with some black velvet ribbon with a bowtie look. I added a row of tiny gold domes down the center of my velvet bow. What do you think?

I have had one busy week. First of all I have had severe ear infections with sinus infection. I had to go to the docs twice because the first prescribed medicine did not work. I actually tried to tell the doc this, but she would not listen. Anyhow, I went back Wednesday because I just was not getting better. Finally, I got the good meds. My family and I went to my parents for Thanksgiving and spent the night out of town. Returned late yesterday afternoon and had friends driving in from Indiana come in and spend the night on their way to their parents today. So, I literally have not had much stamping time!!!
