Floral Finesse For someone Special

Can you believe that it is already Dec. 4th and Flourishes Pre-release challenge?
Its all about floral finesse this challenge, I have the details below and over on the newsletter you can find the info as well. Lets just say that with my sisters wedding next weekend and family in town I was a little late in getting this card in for the Pre-Challenge. LOL But the girls love me anyways I hope. :0)
I went with the yellowish and greenish browns that are the color of my grass and flower beds right now. I am in winter weather all right, the only thing we need is the snow on the ground. Bbbrrrr.... I used Many sentiments and Damask for this card. I added some Pearls and a Gold finishing touches ribbon slider to finish it off. Check out what the girls did for the challenge:
Christine
Cindy
Julie
Latisha
Laura
Leslie
Here are the details for the challenge:
Join us for our release challenge as we play up some floral finesse! This challenge is all about the colors we love in our gardens. The thermometer might say winter, but this one is all about those feel good floral feelings.
The challenge: use your favorite flower as the inspiration for your card/project's color scheme. Maybe you choose dusty pink and sage because it reminds you of the tea roses in your garden. Or, maybe you choose golden shades with hints of brown to remind you of the sunflowers you love in the field nearby! You choose! Just let us know what flower inspired your creation!
The Details: Keyword will be FLLCDEC on Splitcoast and contest runs up until December 11th at 5 PM Eastern in order to be in the running to win all three of our new releases for December!
Hope you get to play along with us! Have a great day.
