Look What I've Missed!

When I click on Splitcoast in search of some great Flourishes inspiration, it's a click here, click there kind of thing. I log on, click gallery, company galleries and BAM, I'm there.

Well recently, I decided to surf differently. I clicked on and searched the word Flourishes. OH MY! I have been missing out on great Flourishes art left and right! Most people don't know - in order to get into the Flourishes gallery, you have to use the FLLC keyword. Want to see some of the work that made my jaw drop? Well, here it is!

This first one is from the talented Bonnie. When I saw this rustic, distressed card, I gasped. It is so simple, yet so elegant. I love the touch of gold she added. It makes the tree from the Flourished Christmas set look even more regal! Don't you think?

Jessie had two cards that made me stop in my tracks! The first is a lovely duo using the Coffee with Friends set! I love that pink and black combo! Too cute!
And the second card is just lovely with a soft wash of color for the Poppies in a really elegant card layout.
I had to laugh when I saw Ginny's card because she says she gave the sleigh from the Sleigh Ride set a dash of Liberace with all the sparkly gems! :-) Ginny, maybe I love this card because in my book - there is no such thing as too much bling! I would LOVE to ride in that sleigh! And, I left Judy for the grand finale because there were several of her cards that caught my eye!
I love the soft look of this treat box below that she made using the large poinsettia from the Poinsettia and Boxwood set. All that layering! The pearls! The silver thread! It's just luscious!
This poppy card is too elegant for words with all the punched borders and accented corners! She has a lot of extras on this card but it still looks perfectly balenced and beautiful!
And, lastly this creation with the bird ornament from the All That Glitters set! I love the way Judy layered her creation with multiple layers from the Curved Rectangles die by Spellbinders! It just makes this creation look so rich with all the gold leafed edges and the way she added gold cording and embossed the bird!
So, see? I have missed quite a bit over the last couple months! That's why I am making a pitch! If you would like to have your art included in the Flourishes Company Gallery on Splitcoast, please use the keyword FLLC. We would LOVE to see YOUR gorgeous creations and "ooooOOOooo" and "AAAhhhhhh" over them as well!
Have a great rest of the week!
