Flourishes Friday!

Hi all! It's another Flourishes Friday full of fun inspiration for all of you! This week, it's a mix of Christmas and every day creations! Today, get ready for some commentary from my 5-year old daughter who joined me today for the trip around blog land!

First up is Becca! When I first set eyes on her creation, Ellie said, "oooOOoo, that's brilliant! She added a red jewel lto the noses!" Well, I tend to agree, pretty brilliant use of a border punch too! I love the ribbon, the tag, the layout, pretty much everything about this card! Stamps Used: Flourishes Sleigh Ride, Flourishes Holiday Greetings . Next up is Christine! Ellie said she loved the flowers on this one and the way they were colored. She asked, "If I practice, maybe I can color that good!" Well, we can all aspire can't we??? I have to break out my Lilac set soon and give it a try! This card is a real stunner! The inking around her flower image just gives the card so much depth! Stamps Used: Lilac
This next creation by Cindy is one that mixes a contemporary edge with some classic, elegant images. The layout is stunning and both us girls here at the Koerber house loved the antique heart she added for a little extra pop! The paper piercing is a great addition too! Stamps used: Flourished Christmas
When we saw Betty's beautiful card, Ellie said," ooOOoo, she's pretty good! I like the bow. How did she get that bow? Did she buy it at Michaels?" When I said, no honey, she made the bow she looked at me almost shocked and said, "She made the bow? Wow!" Funny girl! Betty used this week's color challenge for her inspiraion and I have to say- I love the bold look! Looks like a breath of spring! Stamps Used: Poppy, Thank You, Spring Ephemerals
Thanks for stopping by! We hope these creations help inspire some creativity in your craft room! If it does, please link up your creations! We'd love to see what YOU do with Flourishes stamps!
Until next time!
