I created this card for Flourishes Color Challenge a couple weeks back. It was the first time I played with Flourishes Beauty Within set. I have to say I really like it. It was fun to color. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored it in with Copic Markers (BG10, BG11, YG01, YG03, YG25, Y13, Y15, Y19). It was cut out and embossed with Label 11 Nestabilities. I traced the outside of the die on black cardstock and cut it out so I would have an 1/8″ layer to adhere my image to.


The card base is a 5″ x 10″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. The lower edge of a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Nightlight October Afternoon paper was cut with Jumbo Scalloped Borderabilities. A thin 5″ wide strip of Thrift Store October afternoon paperwas cut with the same die and layered underneath. The top of the Nightlight paper was layered first on a strip of a Basic Black cardstock, then on another Thrift Store paper piece. This one was cut with one Lattice Borderabilities die.

The horizontal paper strip measures 2 1/2″ x 3″ and is from the Daydream collection from October Afternoon. The small strip of lace (Walmart) was stitched on the bottom layer. The bottom of the strip was stitched as well. May Arts Crochet Lace was adhered over that strip and an Organdy Ribbon was tied around the layer. The image was attached over everything with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
