Celebrate our Designers and Sneak Peeks

As we continue Flourishes' Grand Opening Celebration, we honor the talented designers who truly make Flourishes shine! Today's challenge is all about letting these designers inspire YOU! Pay them a visit, pick a designer, and choose one of their cards to CASE. Please make sure to provide a link both to your card and the creation that inspired you!
Important Deets:All of the designers playing in this challenge today are showing off a brand new, soon- to- be- released set called Friendly Reminders! It will be live in the Flourishes Store right after our Power Hour Release Party which begins Friday night at 9 PM CST in our SCS Forum!
Yep I am using the new set Friendly Reminders. Now I choose Laura to case. Laura has a simple style that is just awesome. And she always steps it up a notch with her cards. This is the card I choose to case from Laura. I turned her beautiful and delicate card into this bold summery feeling card. I couldn't get my ribbon to do what I wanted so I just added some jewels to the bottom and added a tag. Kept the over all layout and design the same. Laura you rock girlie!
Now Laura and I have another thing in common besides simple and clean cards. She loves to make gift sets as well. So I made my own little box with magnetic lid that holds these cards and envelopes. Here is the front with it closed. I used the simple tote without the handle that I usually make. I cut out a window in the front with a spellbinders label and adhered some clear cardstock to the inside. So you can peek through to the goodies inside.

Below is a picture with the lid open and a few of the cards out. This little bird house is so cute and perfect for summer and spring cards. I used the small magnet circles to keep the box closed. Added some pearls and crochet ribbon and done. Very simple and great little gift for one of the boys teacher last year. I surprised her with it on her desk at school. She knew it was from me though. I guess that is what I get for being the only stamping mom there. LOL
