Happy World Card Making Day Eve!

In honor of World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 1st, Flourishes is kicking things off one day early in a wild and wacky fashion! As you can see, the gang's all here and they are ready to usher in one very colorful challenge-- just for you! It's all about that inner kid and why we love card making in general -- we get to be creative!

Are you ready??? To play in this challenge, just think like a kid and share your favorite animated character! Find a picture of that character and then, be inspired by the colors for one fun-filled color challenge! Flourishes will take entries through next Thursday, October 6th at 5PM EST. Be sure to show the character in your post with either a picture or a link. Ready to see mine?
Yep, Sheldon James Plankton, the notorious and nefarious nemesis of Sponge Bob Square Pants fame --
the little pip who squeaks, "I've exhausted every evil plan in my file cabinet..." Yep, I love his spunk!

So, I look the three main colors - green, red and pale yellow for my inspiration! Wanna see?
When I thought of green, red and yellow, I immediately thought of Flourishes' Italian Garden set because I knew the colors would meld! After stamping on Flourishes Classic Ivory Card Stock, using Memento Tuxedo Black, I did reach for my Copic Markers and used colors from the Sunflower Collection, the Fields, Poppy, and Evergreen too (all grouped by Flourishes HERE). Cut it out thanks to a Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities Die (thanks to my Grand Calibur Machine), add some stitching, a punched border and you're almost done! Add in some decorative paper (a mix of BasicGrey, Webster's Pages and the polka dot is unknown), cream linen ribbon and a button and... ta da!

Here's a close up of those delish Italian goodies!

Want to know more about the challenge? The winner of this challenge gets a fun-filled prize pack with 5 Flourishes stamp sets of our choice. Once you're done with your creation, head on over to the Flourishes blog to THIS POST to link up your creation! If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword FLLCWCMD11! Here's the fun part, all of the Flourishes Design team picked their favorite characters -- so you'll have to hop around and see which ones made the top of their lists!
Thanks for stopping by! We can't wait to see what you create. Happy World Card Making Day! Th-th-that's all folks! ;-)
