Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge-Home Sweet Home


It's almost time for another new release at Flourishes, so you know what that means.... today brings a new Pre-Release Challenge!  Today's challenge is Home Sweet Home... let your creativity shine by being inspired by something in your home - it could be the color scheme of a room, a painting, vase or floral arrangement - the sky is the limit on this Home Sweet Home Challenge! Please take a picture and show the inspiration piece in your post. Entries must be in by May 11th at 5:00 p.m. EST in order to be in the running for the entire May Release!

For my card today, I was inspired by my Patriotic-themed kitchen, shown below!  This is one corner of my kitchen where I keep some of my antique treasures, and a bunch of Patriotic accessories.  Here you can also see my deep red walls, with the wallpaper and border at the top.  (Just don't look too closely or you'll see the dust, too!)


And here is my card using Flourishes "Patriotism on Parade" stamp set.  This silhouette image of children marching in parade is one of my most favorite stamps.  I paired the image with some old Webster's Pages papers, added a sentiment tag using the Tailor-Made Classic Tags die, some May Arts twill ribbon, a star stick pin and some die-cut stars.  Nestabilities used here include the Standard Circle, Pinking Circle, and Deckled Rectangle.



Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all of the challenge details, and the Inlinkz widget to enter your own creation!  And for more inspiration, visit the rest of the Sr. Design Team members linked below...
