Flourishes Secret Swapper!

Hi all! Hope you all enjoyed a fabulous time with family over the holiday! I know I ate too much! EEK!

A few weeks ago, we organized a little something to get the Flourishes Design Team and Friends of Flourishes Blog Team in the holiday spirit! So, we swapped names and cards and every team member got a 'secret swapper!' Well, I have to say I was a bit intimidated when I reached into the basket and pulled out the name... Becca! I mean, I've never seen a card of Becca's that I didn't think was a complete work of art! What on earth would I or could I send her? I decided to play it simple!
I used the Poinsettia and Boxwood set to create this little water colored poinsettia accent. The paper is the Glittered Christmas Paper (which I think is timeless and can be used year round!!) Add a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings set (Cranberry Adirondack Ink), some satin ribbon and some gold pearls and.... pretty much done! It was a top down fold card and I did corner round the bottom corners.

I was lucky enough to get a Laura Fredrickson original in my hands!

I can't believe she made this gorgeous card and it is a one layer card! the frame was hand drawn as were the "strings" holding up the ornaments from the All That Glitters set. I love how she added some glitter pen and water colored the ornaments. It's even prettier in real life!!
