Blue satin sashes

Happy Friday! It is time again for Flourishes Pre-challenge. This is your chance to win all of the new releases that we will start showing you next week. My how the time flies when you are having fun! Check out the newsletter for more info. Here is a snippet for you regarding the challenge:
***As we continue the Christmas card making season, we wanted to share a few of our Favorite Things! To be in the running for the challenge, all you have to do is to be inspired, in some way, by the words of this decades old Christmas favorite from the Sound of Music! Be sure to tell us which line of the music inspired your card! See the words to the song below this card.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple struedels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things


So based on those words and looking at my card do you know what line I choose? Yep the Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes. I pulled out my Flourished Christmas set for this one. I love this fancy image, added a few pearls, some satin ribbon and a frame around. Now lets see what you make! Check out what the girls picked out in the song:
Christine
Cindy
Julie
Latisha
Laura
Leslie
