Flourishes Noon Time Challenge #1


It's time for the first of two Noon Time Challenges celebrating the new release of stamps from Flourishes! Last release, we challenged players to come up with a fun and unique twist on a challenge, suggest it and they could win a chance to be in the Flourishes spotlight – not only would their challenge be picked, they would be the superstar of the day ushering in the challenge as well! Our first challenge hostess this noon is the talented Suzanne Czosek! We loved her challenge to use your own name in a creative way!
How to Play: Simply use your monogram/initials as the inspiration for your creation! So, if your name starts with an “J” – add jewels! What about “B” –add a bow! How about a “P” – use a punch! Just that simple! Just make sure you share your initials and the things you used on your creation that were name inspired! When you are done, link your creation on the Flourishes blog using our Inlinkz widget. You need to do that in order to be in the running. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCORW1. You have until Friday, October 14th at 5:00 PM EST to enter! Let’s get that name game started and get creative!

My initials are TKH, so for my card I have used...

T - twine, to tie through my button
K - kraft cardstock
H - heat (embossing on the sentiment)

My card uses the new Meet Me Under the Mistletoe stamp set, and some old Wassail papers from Basic Grey. My supplies are listed below.

Check out these other entries from some Flourishes team members for more inspiration, including our Guest Hostess for this challenge...


Remember, the Heavy Metal challenge is still going on where you can enter to win the entire new release! And there will be another Noon Time Challenge tomorrow!
