Flourishes Release continues.....

Happy Thursday!

I'm back with a new card for the Flourishes August Release.  

Today we are introducing a very cool Silhouette Set called......


Here is my take on this sweet Set.....



I decided to create a *long card* that measures 3 1/2" x 7". This card came together super quickly....the card base is Kraft CS. I added some left over paper from my 123 Create Kits - Country Garden that was release last month. The image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black. Next I added the White Lace Trim, the gorgeous May Arts Ribbon with a Stamped Metal Brad, and finished it off with some gorgeous Prima Crystals.
