Flourishes Focus… Going, Going, Gone!

Free-for-All-Friday-550x242
It’s Flourishes Friday once again, and this week the design team is focusing on some of the amazing stamp sets that will be retiring soon!  Be sure to hop around to everyone’s blogs and see the creations using these sets that you’d better grab up now before they’re gone!  :)

For my card, I decided to use this good old set, Thinking of You.  I have always had this set, but have never really given it a second glance and had no idea how pretty and dainty these little flowers are!

I stamped the flowers and oval with Riding Hood Red ink and some Versamark so I could emboss with clear embossing powder.  Then I layered on a Nestabilities Oval and a Labels 18 die cut.  I embellished with some Sea Moss wrinkled seam binding from the Emerald Coast Color Made Easy collection, a Prima pearl flourish at the top left, and a Prima pearl stick pin through the bow.  The papers I used here are My Mind’s Eye.

Visit these other design team members for more great designs using the soon-to-be-retired stamps…

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and happy stamping!
