Flourishes 4th Birthday Blog Hop


Flourishes is lighting the candles and getting ready to sing to honor their fourth birthday! And, as a way to celebrate, I’m happy to say I was hand-picked to help them have a bit of a party as a designer for their customer appreciation hop! The only challenge here was to create a card or project using my favorite Flourishes stamp set. Read on – I’ll tell you how you can win some Flourishes goodies too!

I was hard pressed to decide which Flourishes set I liked the best, there are so many I love. I finally decided on these Gerber Daisies from set #074, They're so fresh, summery and fun and they definitely fill out a number really well BIG GRIN. I'm also using a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder and Quietfire Design Happy Birthday stamp for backgrounds and some of my new metallic paper. You can click on card image to see details and descriptions if you like. Enjoy. Don't forget to read the rest of the post to see how to win stuff.
