FLOURISHES MAY PRE-RELEASE CHALLENGE!!!

Happy TGIF!!!

We're excited to welcome you to the Flourishes May Pre-Release Challenge!

The month of May brings most of us to those warmer sunny days anticipating summer, and in some cultures *May Day* is celebrated by presenting loved ones with flowers or ringing the doorbell at someone's home and leaving behind a basket of flowers and treats.



Today we're bringing you flowers of our own, asking you to be inspired by the colors in this beautiful illustration...

  Colorful+Creations+May+Challenge 

HOW TO PLAY: There are so many beautiful combinations you can be inspired by! Choose all of the colors in the illustration - or pick three that work together for you and create! If you play along with us, you could win Flourishes entire May Stamp Release! If you upload to SCS please use the keyword FLLCMAY13. 

You can enter as many times as you like, but we want you to know if you use Flourishes stamps, your entry counts twice! You have until Friday May 10, 2013 at 5 PM EST to enter. Just make sure you enter your creation below using our InLinkz Widgit. Have fun getting inky!

With this challenge, we also want to let you in on a little secret! Do you like the image above? Well, next week you will see this very flower in its full glory as our designers sneak peak the work of a brand new artist at Flourishes -- Sam Pickard! Sam hails from England and many folks have seen her work on her blog - Planet Sam.

We are so excited to share this artist's work on polymer! We know you will love what we have in store! We know you'll also be inspired by our Senior Design Teams creations so go ahead and visit....
