It's A Berry Sweet Day!

Light the candles, cue the music and get ready for a little bit of birthday fun! It will SOON be a very special lady's birthday and so we rallied the troops to send some birthday wishes her way a little early! On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes will be another year older -- what a wonderful thing to celebrate! So, Flourishes' designers from all teams are joining together to help make this day super special with a......


Here's the scoop, there's a way YOU can help Jan celebrate and win some Flourishes stamps as well! HOW? Simply be inspired by the photo above and create a birthday card for Jan. Just that simple! We just love creative challenges at Flourishes and so, why not usher in another one! One randomly drawn winner will get a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes store, just for playing along! You can find out more about the "official rules" by clicking HERE!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAN MARIE! Cheers to a wonderful day and a wonderful year full of blessings ahead! You deserve it! For Jan's card, I chose to be inspired by the darker pink and lighter pink shades in this photo and added a pop of green (just like you can see in the photo!)
I chose to use the Sweet Peas set and I started with some Flourishes Classic White and the new Sweet Pea Silhouette Cut file! I colored up my image with just a few Copic markers and I used these collections...

I used some My Mind's Eye paper, some fun lace, some white seam binding, a little gold cording and a splash of pearls for my layout and.. almost done! The highlight was using one of Flourishes brand new sets called Inside and Out Hello that I stamped with some deep pink ink and some Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Here's a close up of the sentiment!


And speaking of new releases, today  is the last day for the New Release Bundle! It's a chance for you to get all three new sets released in February for 10% off. Just click HERE to see for yourself!

One extra note? Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she could use a little more of is... happy mail from customers using her stamps! Let's flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's her address so you can pop them in the mail! Jan Marie Caruso 4140 Lyric Lane Pensacola, FL 32514 I know she would love to see "in real life" what beautiful work you all do and I know it would bring a huge smile to her face! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song! Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!
