Happy Tuesday and welcome to our second day of the FLOURISHES SEPTEMBER RELEASE!!!

Today I have two cards for you....my first one is with this post and my second card with the same Set will be revealed a little later...so make sure to come back to check it out!!!! 

I'm excited to introduce you to another fabulous Christmas Set. This one is called POINSETTIA AND PINE...and as you will be able to tell it is filled with  endless possibilities!!!

Here is my first card....

I decided to show off the festive Psalm and one of the single images from this Set....just perfect for the holiday season. My card started out by scoring the second layer from the Flourishes Classic White CS. The Psalm was inked and stamped onto the Spellbinder Classic Oval Dies and I layered onto the matching Scalloped Die. Both of my images were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black. The Berry image was colored withe these Copic Markers ~ R27, R29, YG93, YG99 and Colorless Blender. For some extra texture I added some Crystal Effect to the berries. My card was finished off with the Red/Cream Striped Ribbon, some Silver Metallic String and a Red Button.

Flourishes is also offering another fabulous 123 Create Kits...check it out and you can buy it right HERE!!!

The layout for my card was again inspired by our Pre-Release *The Any Which Way* Sketch Challenge....you still have time to play :) !!!

Now it's time for you to check out the rest of the Senior Design Team for their take on this fabulous Set and remember to come back to visit me to see my second card with this Set!!!
