Just the right 'Finishing Touches'!

TGIF! With Friday comes another Flourishes Focus! This one is being hosted by the uber talented Laura Fredrickson and the topic... is Finishing Touches! You'll have to check out her tutorial over on the Flourishes Newsletter!

Just in case you aren't aware, Finishing Touches are those fun pieces of "jewelry" for your card creations. If you've never checked out the line of embellishments that Flourishes carries.. OH MY.. you really should! You can click HERE to see what I mean!

For my card, I used two of these embellisments! After stamping my lilies onto some Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink, I colored them up with the Fields and Tiger Lily Copic Collections.

I stamped the stems using Memento Bamboo Leaves and New Sprout. Then cut my lilies out and popped them up with some foam tape. The paper was some that I found in my decorative paper scrap bin. I cannot remember what it is! I used a EK Success Border punch and then slipped some of that luscious Olive Silk Ribbon through one of the Finishing Touches Ribbon Slides. To add my hanging tag, I used a jump ring and attached it right to my slide. The message is from the Strawberries set and was cut out to fit my mini message tag with the help of a 3/4" circle punch.

And that, my friends, is all she wrote! Hope you hop on over to the rest of the DT to see what they cooked up!
