Flourishes 100th Challenge

Flourishes is celebrating their 100th Timeless Tuesday blog hop challenge with a customer appreciation hop.  Customers design a card using their favorite Flourish stamps and the Flourish team picks the winners and awards prizes. 

Please visit the link above to see what all the talented people have designed as well as detailed instructions as to what you need to do to enter. BUT, first please look at my card and leave a comment!!  Thanks a bunch!

I stamped one of my favorite Flourish stamps from the Seasonal Wreath Set on black cardstock with the Versamark watermark stamp pad, applied white embossing powder, heated it up, applied red Smooch for the berries, and viola!!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                       I then used Spellbinders (a must have) Label Three die for the embossed wreath and for the red cardstock background.  I mounted the duo onto Flourishes classic white cardstock (absolutely the best for coloring with Copic markers) that I had previously embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the red polka dot paper at the bottom. After putting pearls on either side of the wreath, I adhered the whole thing to red cardstock and then to a 5 x7 white card base made with Flourishes white classic cardstock.  

You owe it to yourself to try Flourishes' stamps. These detailed stamps will add the mojo to any card you design. The Life, Love and Lemons set as well as the Chairs for You set are also among my favorites!!
