Flourishes Grand Opening Celebration -- the final day!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week of fun and games with Flourishes as much as we have! If you click on the new web store, you’ll notice its awash in shades of pink and green. So, as we wrap up our week of Grand Opening challenges, all you need to do is create a card using these two colors!


It's a pink and green color challenge! Simply create and link up here on this post using our cute little InLinkz gadget and you’ll be in the running for a goody bag from Flourishes! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them but if you don't, please play along! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCCEL5. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards.

And, as you hop on over to visit our talented designers, you’ll see a soon-to-be-released set called Easter Basket. This set drawn by senior artist Marcella Hawley is just overflowing with possibilities – and as you make the rounds, you’ll see why! This set will be released right after our Power Hour Release Party TONIGHT. The party starts at 9 PM CST in our SCS Member Company Forum HERE!

Here's a peek!

I love how this set offers fun Easter images that you can stuff in the classic basket (also in the set) or use on their own. I love the saying -- Sweet Easter Wishes --- because what's sweeter than jelly beans, a peep, and a chocolate bunny? The images were colored with a mix of Copic markers, cut out and popped up on decorative pink cardstock. Add some paper piercing, some ribbon, bling and a punched oval for my sentiment and.... voila! You can't see it, but all of my items have a dash of glitter glue on them for a little razzle dazzle.

To see how the rest of the Flourishes designers used this fun and whimsical set, please pay them a visit!
