Flourishes Friday Focus...

Happy TGIF!

I've been under the weather a bit and I can't even tell you how happy I'm that it's weekend time!!!

I did manage to stamp a bit this week and here is my card for the Flourishes Friday Focus on the Forest of Trees Set.



I tried something different this time...I'm becoming daring.....wink. I saw this *Emboss Resist* technique not to long ago on my friend Marisa's blog and I could wait to try it myself.

The only thing I did different was....I started out with the Flourishes Classic White CS and then I took these Memento Ink Pads ~ Cottage Ivy, Dandelion, New Sprout ~ and literally spread them across the CS. Next I heat embossed the tree with the Ranger Super Fine Black EP. The rest of the card was embellished with the matching Color Made Easy Pistachio Ribbon, the cute Stamped Metal Brad along with the Tailor-Made Classic Tag and the sentiment form the Tiny Flowers & Tag Set.

Please stop by all the other team members to see their ideas on this Set ~

Are you ready to take a gamble? Starting today, Flourishes will be hosting a progressive sale called our Gambler’s Sale! We’ll start the sale at 10% off all items on our SALE page and then, each Friday afterward, we will drop prices another 5% until all the items are going, going, GONE! Quantities are limited – so take a gamble and see how low these prizes will go and risk losing the sale or buy them before they get snatched up! There will be no back orders on any of the products facing retirement. So, get these items before they are gone for good! Since we have to make room on our shelves for new products, this sale is bound to be good! Click HERE to take a peek at our sale pages!

Thank you so much for stopping by.....I'll be back tomorrow with a new card :) !!! Hope to see you then....
