Autumn Flourishes -- Day 2 of Flourishes Release!

There's more Flourishes fun brewing on my blog today! Today I get to showcase the brand new set called Autumn Flourishes! It is an easy peasy card that doesn't have much stamping to it!
I used the leaf Flourishes in two corners of my main piece using Lettuce Adirondack ink and sponged on some Antique Linen Distress Ink. I stamped just part of the saying, "Be Grateful" onto a small oval punched piece using Pesto Adirondack ink and matted it on a dark green larger oval (both punches are Stampin' Up). Add some ribbon, a mat and some bling and you're done with that part! The strip is just a matted piece of decorative paper (Prima). The background of my card was stamped with lettuce ink using a distressed background stamp (SU) and the scallop is a SU addition too. Add some rhinestones on the scallop, use a corner rounder on the corners and.... done!

Here's a close up! I love these flourished leaves-- so classy!!!
This truly was a quick and easy card!

Love those green leaves! I was having a "Julie" moment ~ I didn't even notice the bling along the bottom at first amd was thinking it was kinda dull for you (but not for me;). Actually, I shouldn't even be commenting on your blog. I'm special, ya know. I got a beautiful card from THE RUBBER MAID yesterday!!!! Off to go & see what your Mom's up to today ~
