Twinchie Flourishes style

Weekend is here... whohoo! I have plans to do lots of yard work and moving a ton of dirt. Now who in there right mind would be excited about that. LOL It will help save a tree from blowing over so I am actually really excited to get this finally done and off the to do list.
But first we have Flourishes Pre-challenge going on starting today. Yep its your chance to win the WHOLE RELEASE. Here is the details: It’s all about twinchies!
What’s 2 by 2 and loves to take center stage? It’s a “twinchie” and it’s what our release week challenge is all about. To take part, all you need to do is make a 2 by 2 segment the focal point on your card. You have until Friday, April 16th at 5 PM EST to enter for your chance to win our entire April release! Check out the blog for all the details.
I pulled out my Friendly reminders set and popped up this little mailbox after I cut it out. I have a 2x2 spellbinders label 12 square that I used as the frame. I sponged the white all around a little bit, but its hard to see in the photo. I added a sentiment from the Tag Lines set and some pearls. Very simple but I do like how this turned out. Be sure to check out the fabulous creations from the DT:

Have a wonderful weekend!
