As we unveil our challenge next month, we’ll share our True Beauties — those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured right here on the Flourishes blog and will recieve a Bring Back Beautiful Winner blog button to proudly display on their blogs!

On to my creation!

This card was created using one of Flourishes new stamp sets called Lenten Rose along with one of the 1,2,3, Create Kits (click the link to check out their current kit!) called Sparkling Spring. I just love how Flourishes takes the guess work out for you! I am becoming a "kit addict!" HA! The paper was layered and the pink decorative paper on the left was scored and the embossed lines were sanded a bit to reveal the paper's white core. I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored up the Lenten rose using Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes and I used the Fields and Peony collections and then highlighted with B000 and B0000 markers. I also sponged some Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges of my image. Add some pearl mosaics and some ivory silk ribbon and... fini!

Be sure to check out all the beautiful creations our challenge team whipped up this month all with springtime colors in mind!

Thanks so  much for stopping by! Hope you have a great start to your week and I'll see you back here soon!
