Finally getting to play again in a Flourishes challenge & this time it's for the entire December release! I was certainly challenged as you had to incorporate these 8 ingredients: 1) anything except an A2 size card, 2) Use something with a floral flair, 3) Add a bit of ribbon or lace, 4) Use the inspiration photo, 5) Add a tag, 6) Add a rounded corner, or use a die with curvy edges,7)Add an antique flair with distressing or sponging, 8) Use a die cut or punch.
My card size is 4x5, so smaller than A2. I used 2 Flourishes stamp sets: Life Lines for the Eleanor Roosevelt quote & Botanical Bookplates for the sentiment on my little tag. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug & I added colors from the photo using Brilliance Pearlescent Purple & Pearlescent Lime & Faber-Castell big brush light cobalt turquoise. I sponged Distress Ink pumice stone on all the edges including my center Spellbinders Labels 18 & my little tag made with Spellbinders ovals. 2 corners are rounded with a Fiskars punch. I need a birthday card for a co-worker born on Christmas day & I think this will be perfect for her. So glad you came by--love to hear what you think.
