A DIY Challenge!

Hi all and welcome to another fun-filled Friday here courtesy of Flourishes! Today we have a special surprise for you -- it's a one of a kind challenge where YOU pick the course of your challenge. That's right, it's.....


If you play along, you could win Flourishes' entire February release! How do you play? We start with three different choices, and you need to pick one out of each three! So, let's get started! First up, there are three sketches....

 Next, three color schemes....

And finally, three embellishments...

On to my creation!

So, as you can see, I chose the last sketch, picked up the Sunflowers set and then some scraps of paper. This is really a mix of papers Flourishes has sold out of that I had little scraps of here and there. Since it was of the yellows and greens in the third color scheme, I thought -- perfect! Since I followed the sketch, the layout is pretty self explanatory!

I stamped the sunflower on a scrap of Flourishes Classic White using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and then picked up my Copic markers (look below for a list of what colors I used). Add some stitching, some epoxy brads, some light yellow seam binding, a wooden button and.. ta da! All done!
Here's a close up!
