Flourishes November Pre-Challenge

It is that time again for Flourishes pre-challenge. This is your chance to win the ENTIRE new release coming out next week. Check out the newsletter for all the details! Now aren't these shades of blue and almost a little bit of grey just beautiful?




I pulled out the Santa, I believe set for this card. I actually used some of my chalks that I have not used in ages to color this. I shaded all over with the blue chalk after I stamped it in brocade blue. Then I added some sparkle but its hard to see in the photo. The holly is colored with chalks also, they really stand out even with the chalks. Added some white crochet ribbon with some blue silk ribbon for a bow. I really like how this turned out.


I sure hope you play along with us. Be sure to check out the beautiful creations from the DT:
