Flourishes Friday!

Hi all! Time for another fabulous Flourishes Friday with our uber talented Friends of Flourishes blog team! These ladies never, never cease to amaze! This one has a little new, a little old mixed in for some terrific weekend inspiration!

This first card is a beautiful, non traditional Christmas card. Who would have thought light blue and copper could look so good together for a festive card? Well, apparently Laura Fredrickson did! Her card mixes up fun elements to create a very striking creation! She used the new "All that Glitters" set, one of Flourishes' new releases this month! The sentiment is from the new set, "Holiday Greetings."

When creating this next card, Becca Feeken said, there's nothing like a beautiful poinsettia to get you in the Christmas mood. Wow! All it takes is just one look at her card! She used one of the Flourishes new releases, Poinsettia and Boxwood. Just beautiful! Joan Bardee's card also uses the All That Glitters set in a way that creates such a warm and cozy card. She admitted earlier that she is in love with the new Flourishes Glittering Christmas Paper and this is another fabulous sample using this lucious paper!!!
Cindy Haffner cracked open the Birds And Vine set for this almost glamorous card! Flowers, sparkles, birds and elegant vines combine to create a beautiful and very interesting design! I love those popped up circles that spotlight the birds!
Cindy Lawrence said her goal was a simple card to showcase the Bird and Vine set as well. I don't know how she does it! This is a pretty simple card that is.. well... pretty! She makes it look so incredibly easy-- doesn't she? Did you see the faux brads on the bottom? You'll have to click on her blog to read up on that!

As always, if you want to surf more of these ladies fine creations, just hit our blog roll showcasing our Friends of Flourishes team!

Have a wonderful weekend!
