Let the Flourishes Grand Opening fun continue! Today, it's all about the *sparkle!* That's our simple challenge for the day. We think our new store shines with fun. So, let's make a card that shows off our glitzy side! Simply create and link up here on the Flourishes Blog and you'll be in the running for a goody bag from Flourishes! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCCEL4 and FLLC. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards. And, as you make the rounds to visit our talented designers, you'll see a soon to be released set called Lily of Hope. This set will be released right after our Power Hour Release Party Friday night at 9 PM CST in our SCS Member Company Forum!

For my card I am using the soon to be released set Lily of Hope!  This set packs a huge punch!  Wonderful flowers, sentiments, and inspiration!  I am using Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  I colored my Lily with Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Buttercup, Delphinium, Green Grass, and Meadow.  The C1(Cool Neutrals) and BV20(Hyacinth) were use for flower shading.    I am using Basic Gray Nook & Pantry dp.  I have decided that I should NOT be left alone in my craftroom with bling.  I sort of went ALL out on the glitz factor!  I just had a hard time stopping.  Sparkle is so much fun!  I added a little paper pierced butterfly detailing to my card.  I found a template that would work with the butterfly....pierced it...and punched it out.  I need to do this look more often with my shape punches.  The piercing touch qualifies it for the C4C27 Challenge this week...paper piercing!  This card is also for the new Scrap-Creations Basic Gray challenge! 

Please check out the other designers to see what they created with the soon to be release stamp set and *sparkle*!

This is my card for Wednesday's challenge to CASE a Flourishes designer(FLLCCEL3)!   I was unable to post because my dd decided she would dig up her time capsule she buried a few years ago and ended up cutting the phone line.  Nearly 254 hours later and over $100 in cable guy call, I am back online!  

I chose to CASE the NEW FOF member Barbara Anders!  Here is her card I chose to CASE.  I must admit I tried to follow the sketch, but I had to alter it a bit to fit my image.  The basic concept of the layout, pattern choices with different dp, and embellishments are there.  

I am using the soon to be released Friendly Reminders.  I combined it with some MB Gossamer dp. I am using Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  I colored my Lily with Flourishes Classic Color Collections in Delphinium, Fields, and Flesh Tones.  I added my fou fou bow with some gold pearls and it was complete!

By the way, my dd could not find her time capsule.  She cannot remember where she buried it!  Go figure!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  As always your comments are greatly appreciate!
