Don't be so "blue" this holiday season! Join us for week three of the Festive Flourishes Friday Challenge! The theme is just as it sounds ~ "You'll be doing alright with your Christmas of white but I'll have a blue, blue Christmas!"Grab your favorite Flourishes stamp set and dress it up with a dose of blue! It doesn't have to be a Christmas card! Any style will do! Remember, you can join into our challenge at any time and, if you make up past challenges and complete all four - your name will be thrown into the hat for a free stamp set of your choice! Link your card to the Flourishes Newsletter or your SCS gallery. Don't forget the keyword FFFC3 on Splitcoast! Of course, we'd love it if you added the FLLC keyword too so that your work shows up in the company gallery!
Kandi (kandicejo) pm'd me with a link to a rose that does LOOK TEAL!!!! How exciting!!!! Thanks a bunch, Kandi!!!!

Bluebird come fly away with me!!!! I went with a blue and teal combo. Still keeping with the blues!!! I used taken with teal and some DCWV Pearlized Metallic luxury stack in soft hues of blue. So, this card has a sheen. I think I created a new color of rose, but I really wanted a soft teal!!!! I used a fiskars edge punch, some stickles, and pearls to add some detailing. I finished it off with some touches of pearls in the corners to match my papers pearlized sheen. The ribbon really does match in real life.
