A Flourishes Challenge

Supplies Used - SU Echos of Kindness (Level II Hostess) and Dias Felices stamp set. Fiskars Border Punch, Dk Blue Velvet Ribbon. Paper: Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Black, White. Colored with Copics.
So, I don't know about you, but this is all new to me and I'm not get ANY SLEEP these days!! I'm just now figuring out that there our Challenges for challenges about challenges on every day of the week and every day of the week there is a new challenge and a new blog and more talent popping up! So, for some, this may be madness, but for me, it's like Christmas, and I'm totally slap happy picking out challenges to try and make cards with all the requirements!! I've been blog hopping and finding the most amazing and talented people out there. Wow, I had NO IDEA that this blog world thing was so vast and unending!! Anyhow...I came across the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, which I had heard about, saw cards posted for it, and wondered about what the heck that was all about. So what I found out is that there's one every week posted here, and you can use your Flourishes stamps if you have them...or if you don't, you can still participate. The cool thing is, that you see the cards made with the Flourishes stamp sets by some of the most talented stamp artists ever!! Seriously, all my favorite stampers are part of this Design Team!!. And of course you'll drool over the awesome Flourishes stamp sets and want to shop for Flourishes stamps!! (what recession??). So I jumped in tonight -- this is my first Flourishes Challenge card and this week it is to use flowers!! How fun and perfect is that!! I don't have Flourishes stamps...yet...but I do have this really cool SU Level II Hostess set called Echos of Kindness. Its gorgeous, prettiest set since the long retired Petal Prints. I just love it. Anywho, I stamped one of the images several time across white CS, colored them all in with the softest Copic colors I have, then mounted the panel on Black, Bashful Blue and Pacific Point. Stamped the sentiment from " Dias Felices" that translates to "Thinking of You". I love love love my Spanish language sentiment stamps!! To finish it off, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to give it some sparkle and roped it off with a dark blue velvet ribbon. Thanks for stopping by all!
