A Flourishing Day

I can't believe it I managed to get two cards done this morning! Whoohoo!! The first card was made with Flourishes Mardi Gras set, and Basic Grey's Two Scoops paper also available at Flourishes. I love the two scoops paper pack the colors are too sweet!!

This card was made for today's sketch challenge, not too sure how I feel about it, I LOVE the colors just not sure about the rest, I may try pull it all apart later, and see if I can do something better, probably should just let sleeping dogs lie though. The sentiment is from Flourishes and is called Flourished words, the script they chose is so elegant.

Man oh man did we get a dumping of snow yesterday, when I went to pick Jason up it was white out conditions, needless to say I was not thrilled. Normally I love winter, but for some reason this year I have just had enough already!!

Supplies: Mardi Gras, Flourishes, FLLC, Bashful Blue, wild wasabi white card stock, two scoops DP, Black ink, ribbon, and nestabilities.

Supplies: Flourished Words, Flourishes, FLLC, soft sky, chocolate chip card stock, soft sky designer prints, chocolate chip ink, ribbon, build a brad, prima flowers, brads.

It's funny how sometimes our creations that we "aren't sure of" are other peoples favorites! I adore them both but especially LOVE the one for the sketch challenge!
