Flourishes Release Week - Noontime Challenge #2 - A CASE of Fun!

Welcome to another one of Flourishes Noon Time Challenges! It’s a challenge that could have you walking away with Flourishes’ entire July release. All you need to do is play along! So, without further ado, let’s get to the action!

HOW TO PLAY: All you need to do to enter is to look at the blog rolls on the right hand side of the Flourishes blog from ANY one of our teams — our Design Team, our Friends of Flourishes team, or our Bring Back Beautiful team. Surf around our team link list and choose a card they created using Flourishes stamps and CASE it — you know what CASE means, right? It means Copy And Steal Everything. Be inspired by one of our designer’s layouts and create a “Copy Cat!” Follow the rules below and when you are done, be sure to link up your creation on the Flourishes blog using our Inlinkz widget! Just that easy-peasy!
  • Pick a designers card to CASE. When you choose, be sure to link to the original creation in your blog post or gallery post so we can see your inspiration!
  • Entries need to be in by Friday, July 15th by 5 PM EST.
  • Those that use Flourishes stamps will be counted twice for their entries.
  • You must link your creation on this post using our inlinkz widget in order to qualify.
  • You must have a link to our challenge in your blog or gallery post.
  • Please DO NOT combine challenges! While we love challenge chasers, we want to give those that follow the rules a chance at a prize valued at more than $60.
  • If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCJUL02.

For my creation, I was inspired by this card from Sr. Design Team member Dawn Burnworth! I used the general layout of her design to create this card using the new Moments in Time stamp set! This stamp set is SO wonderful... I feel like I should be on a roof shouting that to everyone! You will love it for masculine cards (as you'll see in my second creation below) as well as all-occasion! But, back to the card.... in this instance you might say that CASE stands for "Copy And Selectively Edit" because my finished product didn't quite end up looking a LOT like Dawn's card! The papers I used here are from the Spring/Yacht/Country collection from Webster's Pages, and I embellished with some KaiserCraft black pearls, a flower/ribbon/stickpin combo, and a sentiment flag from the Spellbinders Nested Pennants Nestabilities.

And below is a more masculine card using the same stamp set... this card I made before I read the requirements for the challenge today! But I wanted to share it with you as well! The layout for this design was inspired by Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday #19, and the papers I used here are from the Reflections line of papers at Prima. Don't you just love that "Old Timer" sentiment?
We can’t wait to see what creations you’re inspired by. So get those fingers inky and be sure to link up your creations on the Flourishes blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
