Flourishes Release Week Challenge

Good morning! It's time for Flourishes Release Week Challenge! Today we have a colorful color challenge! These are perfect springtime colors, don't you think? I'm pretty inspired by them!

HOW TO PLAY: To join us in this challenge, all you need to do is be inspired by this beautiful color palette above! Mix a couple shades of blue with a splash of yellow and you'll be in the running! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCMAR13. Enter as many times as you like, but know that if you use Flourishes stamps, your entry counts twice! You have until March 15, 5PM EST to enter. Just make sure you link your creation up below using our Inlinkz widget. As we said, winner gets our full March. So get those fingers inky!
Let's get to the card, shall we?

I used a sentiment from Flourishes Hydrangea set that I stamped in Memento Danube Blue onto one of Flourishes Fresh Labels printable frames, which I then fussy cut out, and popped up onto popdots. I used two shades of blue from the Color Made Easy True Blue cardstock that I used to mat my card, and some Light Blue Silk Ribbon to for my card. I added two white glitter stars that I dabbed with Memento Nautical Blue and a couple Kaiser Aquamarine Rhinestones.

If you need a little inspiration, it’s never far away with our design team’s creations! Hop on over and see…
