Flourishes has been waiting to officially unveil its new home on the web for months and this week we're kicking off five days of fun and games to celebrate the big event! Today's challenge is a bit sketchy – literally. PageMaps.com hostess and Flourishes artist Becky Fleck whipped up a special sketch just for our celebration! Use it for your own creation, link up at the Flourishes blog post here and you could walk away the winner of our day one drawing for a goody bag from Flourishes (it's a fun-filled surprise!). If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword FLLCCEL1. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards!

For my card I am using A Year of Flowers 1 and Tag Lines.  I am using Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  I stamped my image using Momento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored the pansies using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Delphinium, Hydrangea, Sky, and Fields.  I finished my card with some silver pearl accenting and black gingham ribbon!

Please check out the other designers to see what they created using the sketch!



As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
Your comments are always greatly appreciated!
