Flourishes New Store Celebration - Day Four

Let the Flourishes Grand Opening fun continue! Today, it's all about the *sparkle!* That's our simple challenge for the day. We think our new store shines with fun. So, let's make a card that shows off our glitzy side! Simply create and link up here on this post and you'll be in the running for a goody bag from Flourishes! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCCEL4. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards. And, as you make the rounds to visit our talented designers, you'll see a soon to be released set called Lily of Hope. This set will be released right after our Power Hour Release Party Friday night at 9 PM CST in our SCS Member Company Forum!

This Easter lily set is gorgeous!!! I stamped the main image on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out and popped it up on Pop Dots to give it some dimension. Then I added some bling and a silk bow to the card.

I also added some Angel Wing Shimmerz to the lily petals, and Flower Soft to the stamens. My patterned background paper is glittered, too, so I think I've brought on the bling with this card :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check back in tomorrow to see what we have in store for you for the last day. And also be sure to check out the rest of today's offerings by visiting these DT and FOFDT blogs.
