Hello dear blog friends,
This week’s challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is Fabulous Flourishes. I think most of us love to use flourishes on our cards as it is always so elegant and stylish. For my card I used the Tim Holtz Alterations die “Elegant Flourishes” to create a kind of frame for the image from JanetK Design. I fell in love with the beautiful image the first minute I saw it on Janet’s blog. The little birdies and gorgeous pink roses are so perfect with the flourishes. I decided to glue pearls on the flourishes to make them more prominent and for a more vintage touch. The bow is made with wrinkled ribbon from May Arts. Hope you can join us this week at Sugar Creek Hollow to show us what you can to with flourishes.
