Flourishes September Sneak Peek, Day Two

Happy Thursday! Ready for Day Two of the September Flourishes Sneaks? Didn't you  just love Feminine Charm? Swoon! 

Today's set is quite different but one I can see me reaching for over and over.


For my card today I decided to go Christmas. I can do Christmas any time of the year, especially when I have a fabulous image to work with. I thought this medallion makes a great snowflake, how about you?


I stamped the medallion on patterned paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with white fine detail embossing powder. Then I cut around the design, added the center from Holiday Greetings and placed a few flat back pearls on the image.

Be sure to check out the inspiration provided by the rest of the Flourishes Senior Design Team and remember, one of us is today's  

Mystery Blogger Graphic
