Happy TGIF!!!

It's time for another Flourishes Free For All Friday Challenge!!! The Design Team is sharing projects using some of their favorite Stamp Sets from the July Release.

Here are my ideas ....sit back and enjoy I have two cards for you ......

My first card is showing the Flowers and Frames Set. The image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and I decided to color the sweet little flowers on the second layer using these Copic Markers ~ YG11, G20, Y15. Again used some of the 123 Create Kits - Country Garden that was also released with this month. The only extra thing I added was the *scored* panel using the Flourishes Classic White CS and the Petite Mini Roses.

Please make sure to visit the rest of the team for their ideas:

 The second card was inspired by the Catered Crop Recipe Swap Challenge. The recipe is *RUFFLES*!!! Please makes sure to swing by the Catered Crop Blog for all the details on how to play along.

Here is my idea....

I immediately thought of the Flourishes Denim Ruffles that I received with one of my older 123 Create Kits. I also used the super cute newly released Flourishes Bike Ride Set. The image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ C1, C2, C3, YG11, YG13, G21, G24, B63, B66 and Colorless Blender.

The DP on the side is from the Authentique Genuine Collection. Next I finished the card off with some *scoring*, some Blue Stripe Ribbon, the super cute Floral Brad and some Silver Pearls...voila!

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back with a new card tomorrow....see ya then!!!
