Let it Snow!

It's hard to believe, but it's that time again... time for another Flourishes release full of creative fun! To get ready, the Flourishes Design Team is offering up a fun-filled challenge and the winner walks away with the entire November Release! So, without further ado....

HOW TO PLAY: It sparkles, shines and glistens on the landscape. Let's capture some of that snowy sparkle on our cards or creations! Use glitter, Flower Soft, or any kind of bling that offers up a snowy feel! If you use a gallery with a keyword, please use FLLCNOV11. And remember to link up HERE over on the Flourishes blog using the inlinkz widget in order to be in the running! You have until November 11th at 5PM EST to enter -- so let's get creative and make up some snowy delights!

On to my creation! I have to say, I used last week's Mojo Monday sketch as a starting point for my creation! Love those sketches....

I needed to get a thank you card made and so I took this opportunity to think a little bit out of the box and focus on the color and glitz instead of trying to use a "snowy" image! I hadn't picked up my Butterflies and Blossoms stamp set lately and that is honestly one of my favorite Flourishes sets! I stamped using a discontinued ink color from Close to My Heart (Sorry, it was the only one that matched my paper!) and mixed and matched some paper. Some dp is from my stash, other is a part of the My Mind's Eye Breeze paper pack. Add some silver leaf pen, some stitching, some paper piercing and you're almost there! I added some glitter glue to my butterflies and popped them up by stamping twice, cutting and then using glue dots to attach. Add in some Crystal Sparklets, some iridescent ribbon and... ta da!! 

Here's a close up of the tag. Honestly, it's not blank! I just chose a really faint ink and man, was it hard to photograph! It says... Thank You.



And that, my friends, is it! Need a little inspiration to get you started? You'll have to hop on over and see what our DT whipped up! I know you won't be sorry you visited! :-)
