Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge - Feminine Flair

Lace, pearls and flouncy ribbons - these are the things that make up a creation with a truly feminine flair. That's what is at the heart of this month's challenge. To enter, let's see how you add a dose of femininity to your cards or creations! Link your project up on the Flourishes blog, and if you upload to SCS, please use the key word FLLCDEC11. Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't please play anyway! The winner will recieve our entire December release. You have until December 16 at 5 PM Easterm time to submit.



For my card, I decided you can't get more feminine than our Feminine Charm stamp set, so I used that along with some pretty lace, ruffles and pearls.  My "lace" is from the Lace & Trim stamp set, currently on sale in the Flourishes store... see that pretty border across the bottom?  It's such a neat way to add a lacy touch to a card without the bulk of real lace.  I embellished with some Kaisercraft pearls (colored with a Warm Gray Copic marker) and used several Nestabilities here including the Labels 8, the Nested Pennants, and the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle.

The rest of the Flourishes Sr. Design Team members are also using the beautiful Lace & Trim stamp set today with their Feminine Flair designs, so be sure to check them out for inspiration...
