FLOURISHES NOON TIME CHALLENGE!!!!

Hello again!

It's time for our new Flourishes NOON TIME CHALLENGE...another great way to win some Flourishes October Release goodies!!!

The theme for this challenge is to *GO NATURAL*!!!



Here is what I came up with....... 



I decided to show you another way to use our beautiful new Naturally Merry Set that we have sneak peeked earlier today. If you missed it...click HERE.

Here is how this card came together....my card base was created with the Flourishes Ivory CSI decided to score the left side of the second layer before I added the Design Paper from the My Mind's Eye Breeze Collection. The sentiment and the main image were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and the pine cones were colored with these Copic Markers ~ E00, E27, E29, G82, G85, G94 and Colorless Blender. Next I embellished the card with the Linen Burlap, some May Arts Bittersweet Ribbon, some Kraft Jute Twine, Buttons and some Prima Smoky Crystals. Before I put my card together I ink distressed the edges with the Ranger Tea Dyed Pad.
