Flourishes Let's Hop Challenge

Welcome to the kick off of Flourishes' December release! Today the entire Flourishes Design Team is ushering in a challenge and YOU could walk away winning all of our new sets for December! Here's how to get in on the fun. We're going to HOP and at each designer's blog is another clue for our progressive challenge! If I am your first stop on the hop, you'll need to travel back to the Flourishes blog HERE to get your first clue and follow the hop through each of the designers' blogs. By the end of the hop, you'll have 8 "ingredients" that you'll need to use when creating your cards for this Let's Hop Challenge. Follow the "recipe" and you'll be in the running!
So, let's get on to clue number 1.
For this step of the progressive challenge, you'll need to create anything except an A2 size card. So any size creation other than the standard A2 size.
My creation is a 5x5 square card and pretty straight forward. I stamped out my Zinnia's onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
Several copic collections were used to color:



Once colored I die cut the oval shape with Spellbinders classic ovals small. I then took some of the yummy Color Made Easy Sunflower collection paper and die cut out my Perfectly Pierced Victorian Oval and layered these panels up on dimensionals. Added some of the beautiful Color Made Easy Sunflower ribbon to match and then to finish it off a few of the Primas Crystals from the Crystal Falls set. The sentiment is from the In and Out Just Because stamp set.

If you want to try your hand at winning Flourishes' December Release, you have until Friday, December 14th at 5PM EST to get your entry or entries in! To enter, simply link your creation up to THIS POST over on the Flourishes Blog using the Inlinkz Widget. You can also check out that post for more on the official rules! Again, if I was your first stop, be sure to go back to the Flourishes Blog  and the start of the hop! If you've already made it through - hop on over to your next clue, which will be Julie's Blog!
One last note, don't forget out Gamblers Sale is at 40%! GASP!!! That is quite the deal. Check out the sale HERE!  Happy hopping and stamping this weekend!

Oh, what a pretty card. I like how the whole card wasn't embossed, it takes my eye to the sentiment. Must make a mental note of that. Thanks for the inspiration.
I just love Zinnias. Need to put this on my wish list.

Gorgeous card Stacy. So much texture and I love how the two pearls under "the best" makes it seem to be emphasizing those two words.
