The stakes are getting higher!

Well folks, the stakes are getting a wee bit higher! It's week three of  Flourishes' six-week Gambler's Sale and they are stepping up the discount again -- this time to 30% off store wide! With that kind of discount, some of your favorite sets on your wish list won't last long!


Why is this sale a gamble? Well, ALL of the items now in the store will be going, going, gone -- never to return again. So, if you see something you really want -- buy it now or take a gamble to see how low the price will go! Like we said, this week everything is 30% off with the code GAMBLERS30. Just use that code in the coupon box at the time of check out to get 30% off your entire order, even on already reduced sale prices!

On to my creation!

Well, for my card today, I picked up a set that needed a little love. I chose In Nature. I needed to make a masculine card, and I thought this image was perfect. It's funny, while my family and I were watching football, I had my little case of Copic markers and some images and I just sat and colored! This was one that I just didn't seem to want to stop coloring -- I wanted to add more to the clouds, to the trees, to the grasses, to the water. I finally said -- Ok -- pur your hands up and step away from your markers! For my papers, I picked up some green scraps and took the kraft style paper from THIS paper pack. The strip is Flourishes Kraft. And... I stamped on Flourishes Classic White.   After stamping using Tuxedo Black, I used the New Leaves, Fields, Iced Aqua, Creamy and Poppy Collections grouped by Flourishes. 

And, one fun addition? I took the kraft paper and I accented it using the chevron stripe and the faded background from the So Distressed stamp set. There are SO many fun backgrounds in this set. They are all subtle designs when you want to add a little interest! Below you can see the chevron off to the side.... 


And below, you can see the faded stamp to create a kind of antiqued background. Add in some twine and a wood button and... ta da! Almost done! I did add the sentiment from the Mountain View stamp set because it was perfect for my card. 


And that, my friends, is it! This card is going to my brother. He just came to Montana for a wee visit for his birthday and I thought I would drop this in the mail to let him know how much we loved seeing him. I vowed to try to SEND as many cards as I made in 2014. Let's see if I can stick to that resolution! ;-)

Each Monday, between now and February 24th, we'll be adding another 10% off! While you're shopping, be sure to check out Flourishes' Mystery Bags!
