Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful BBB20

Happy Monday, everyone!  We are here to Bring Back Beautiful (BBB20)  for March!  Paper crafting has brought the world closer.   With global reaches, we need to celebrate seasons on a global scale.  This month is all about the Beauty of Autumn or Spring depending on where you live.   Create a card or project that showcases the season of your region!     

For my card I am using Flourishes 
Lily of Hope stamp set.  I decided to go sort of CAS again today.  I say sort of because when you get right down to it the card looks fairly simple, but there are a few steps to get to simplicity.  

I  stamped the lily onto  Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock using a raspberry and artichoke ink.  The flower is designed with such detail that I think it looks absolutely beautiful just outlined in colored.  I stamped the sentiment over top with some Memento Tuxedo black.  I finished with a seam binding bow, pearlize gold button, and three gold metallic pearls.    I am using the sketch from Card Patterns155. 

Check out what the rest of the team created with the 
Beauty of Autumn or Spring theme!


As always thanks so much for stopping by!
