Flourishes 2-4-6-8 Celebration!


Hi all! Since Flourishes is lighting the candles on its fifth birthday cake, we decided to throw a little party to celebrate and the party is TODAY! We are having a day that we are calling.....

  HOW TO PLAY: This challenge is sweet as can be -- just use a focal image or sentiment that is SWEET! Just that simple! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them -- your entries will count twice. If you don't have Flourishes stamps, play along anyway, you could win some! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCIS5A.

So get those fingers inky and join us for our birthday bash!

And here's my "sweet" creation for you today.... it doesn't get much sweeter than HONEY, right?  



I was inspired by the Retro Sketch #24 for this week, although my final design ended up a little off-kilter from the sketch.  My honey pot image comes from Flourishes' Bee My Honey stamp set, and I embellished with some lace and two-tone textured ribbon from the Flourishes online store.  I used Spellbinders Circle and Lacy Circles dies, and the papers I used are Glitz "Cashmere Dame."  My image is stamped on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copics from the Beehive and Rich Brown collections.


Good luck with the challenges today, and happy stamping!
