Flourishes Christmas Challenge

Good Morning! Are you ready for Christmas? What??? This is May 1st for cryin in a bucket. Yes you might need another cup of coffee to read this.... Have Yourself a Merry Lil Christmas! That's the goal with a brand new Flourishes challenge that we are unwrapping today!
Over on SCS at Flourishes Forum I will be ushering in a new challenge to make sure we all get our Christmas/Holiday cards done on time! No rushing here! This year we will be all prepared and ready to sit and enjoy the season with one less thing to do. YEA!!!

So you want to play? Use this sketch to create a Christmas card using Flourishes stamps. When you wrap it up with a bow, just link up to this challenge thread here and you'll be in the running to win a Flourishes Christmas stamp set of your choice! Just think, you'll get a jump start on your Christmas creations AND have a chance at winning stamps to make even more Christmas cards! Oh what fun it is!! Please use the Keyword FLLCNOEL1 if you upload to Splitcoast. You have until May 30th to submit your cards and Flourishes will announce the winner with next month's challenge! Play as many times as you would like. Have fun!

For my card I used the set All that Glitters. I added some sparkle to the border of my circle. I tied the silver cord for my bow tops and I like how that turned out. A pretty easy sketch and I will plan to use it again. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy stamping!
