Feminine Flair

Flourishes is gearing up towards Release Week! I Love this time of the month because I really, really love their images! So in honor of Release Week coming up, the Flourishes Design Team is offering us a challenge and a chance to win the Entire Collection of Flourish's December's Release stamps! You can find our more about the challenge HERE on their blog :)

Julie and the team has challenged us to: Use Feminine Flair (i.e. Pearls, Ribbon, Lace, ect)!
I really love a good challenge like this and feminine can be a fun theme to work with. When I think feminine, I think pinks and creams, so that's what I used.

I used Flourishes "Feminine Charm" set, as it seemed only fitting to use this set with the challenge :) I colored my image in with Tombows, cutting out the image with a Spellbinders Large Oval die and matting that with a Labels #18. I pulled my only and very precious "So Sophie" paper from My Mind's Eye and matted that with Bazzil's "String of Pearls" shimmery Cardstock. The stickpin is from Jenni Bowlin Studios, the flower is from Prima, and the butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart. I finished it all off with some ribbon, lace from Flourishes and some pearls placed here & there.

I am pretty happy with how it turned out, though I was pretty worried about it after I cut my paper wrong. And seeing that is my only sheet and I can't find it anymore, I wish I had bought more of that paper, it's gorgeous in real life! :)
