Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge Friday

It's time again for my favorite part of the month... Flourishes New Release!  It’s a new year and a new round of Flourishes stamps is just about ready to be revealed! So, let’s ring in this new year, with a release week challenge designed to honor the changing of old…to new!
HOW TO PLAY: Ring in the new year with “Father Time” or “Baby New Year” – this challenge is a fight between new and old! To be in the running, simply use a card that showcases an image of time or one that showcases little baby new year i.e. a baby card. Either will get you in the running! After you’re done making your creation, don’t forget to link it up on the Flourishes blog post using the Inlinkz widget! You have until January 13th at 5:00 PM to get in the running! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don’t, play along anyway — you could win some! The winner will recieve all three sets that are a part of our January release! If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, don’t forget to use the keyword FLLCJANRW2.

I don't currently have a baby stamp set from Flourishes, so I pulled out my Moments in Time set to create my card for today's challenge, and paired it with some new Echo Park "Yours Truly" paper.  I stamped my clock face and embossed with clear embossing powder and embellished with a pearl stick pin and some black Prima crystal swirls.  For the layout on my card, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch #149.


Please visit the other Flourishes Sr. Design team members for more inspiration and join us for this challenge! AND stay tuned next Wednesday through Friday for sneak peeks of all the new stamp sets!  You're going to LOVE them!


Many thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!
