You've got a friend... and a SALE!

All of you folks looking for a bargain? We've got one at Flourishes! This week, prices are dropping again in our six-week Gambler's Sale. Starting now, all prices STOREWIDE are 40% off! With prices this low, your favorite sets won't be on our store shelves for long! In fact, many are already gone for good!

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 40% off with the code GAMBLERS40. Just use that code in the coupon box at the time of check out to get 40% off your entire order, even on already reduced sale prices!

Ok... on to my creation!

For my card, I used one of my old-time faves, Sweet Nature. I just love the sweet blossoms in this set! I stamped on Flourishes Classic White using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. And then, I colored my image up with Copic Markers.I used the Lenten Rose, New Leaves and Pistachio Collections grouped by Flourishes. You can find all of the collections HERE in this handy, dandy swatch book! The shape is from a Silhouette Cut file I created. After I was done coloring, I took the faded damask image from the So Distressed set and stamped it around my image to create a kind of halo effect. I just love the way you can add texture with that set! From there, I grabbed from scraps from my decorative paper scrap bin, added some lace and some bling and... almost done! I did also grab some white seam binding ribbon for a little bow. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of white and punched out with a 1-1/4" circle punch. 

And here.... is a closeup! 

And that, my friends, is it! An easy peasy card with a pop of color. I love having these kinds of cards at the ready for a little pick-me-up for a friend! And remember my promise of 2014 -- send more cards! ;-)

Before I go.... don't forget about Flourishes' MYSTERY BAGS! Each bag is valued at roughly $40 but... you pay only $25 (before the discount)!!! Each bag has two stamp sets -- YES TWO! Each bag also has a fun tutorial sheet showcasing a card or technique, a few yards of ribbon and an embellishment. What a bargain! Click HERE to visit the store and pick one up today!

Love how you did this with the faded damask. Wonderful use of your stamps. I've been over to Flourishes and things are really getting sold out. It makes me sad a little.

Absolutely beautiful, Julie! Your flower matches perfectly to the patterned paper. :)
