On to my creation! Ok, I have a confession. It's not like I love breaking the rules... but I just really wanted to use some of my BasicGrey Hello Luscious paper. So, instead of going heavy on the daffodil -- I just used yellow to put it in the centers of my clematis. It's there... I promise!
For this creation, I used one of Flourishes old kits (sold out) called Hello Luscious. I loved all the papers and in fact, I even used one of the distressed solid papers to stamp my image on. After stamping the image from the Butterflies and Blossoms set with Memento Black ink, I colored it up with Copic markers and used a few of the Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes - Peony, Spring Green, and the Sunflower. The rest is simple! Add a little punched border, a little paper piercing, some fun raspberry colored crochet lace and a dainty little silver ribbon slide. I also stamped a sentiment from the set in the lower right corner and intentionally paper pierced around it. Not a lot to this card, but you know, sometimes that's a great thing!

Need a little inspiration to get those creative juices flowing? Just check out the fabulous creations from our senior design team!
Flourishes is kicking off a brand new kit Monday and so, the paper is about to fly in my craft room so I can share some samples with you then! I'll see you back here soon!
