Christmas is definitely in the air!!!!! I am getting the feel of Christmas just by shopping and seeing all the wonderful Christmas scenery in the stores. With so much festivities happening everywhere, we want you to join in the fun. The Friends of Flourishes have a wonderful surprise for each Friday this month . This week for Flourishes Friday we're making it Festive Flourishes Friday and you can join us in the fun! It's all about the colors of Christmas-red and green! So, grab your favorite Flourishes, LLC set and some greens and reds and let your creativity flow! That's the only requirement! You don't even have to make it a Christmas card. If you want to play along, simply leave a comment on Flourishes Newsletter or upload your card to Splitcoast using the keyword FFFC01. Keep in mind, we'll be doing this fun Friday challenge all month long and there will be a special drawing for those that play all four weeks!
For my Festive Flourishes Friday card I used my favorite Flourishes Christmas set this year Sleigh Ride. I love this set because it has the wonderful signature Flourishes deer in it. It also has several smaller winter scenes, and this wonderful sleigh. I love all of the words that come in this set, too. Can you see why it is my favorite? I used real red and Prism classic green cardstock. When I think traditonal Christmas, I automatically gravitate to old world looks and Christmas caroling which is why I used a piece of MME's musical score glitzy dp. I distressed the edges with some Ranger inks. Technically every piece is distressed with the Ranger inks to create a warm look. I think this sleigh makes me think of the song, "Dashing Through the Snow." I paper pieced the sleigh using a piece of dp from Deja Views global views pack. I can feel the cold wind in my face, the smell of pines everywhere and wood burning fireplaces filling the air with the smells of the season. What do you think?
