Flourishes 1, 2, 3 Create Kit

Hi there, everyone! Did you see the new kits that Flourishes introduced a couple of weeks ago? Well, they went so fast that last Monday they introduced another one. And, yep, you guessed it...they flew off the shelves, too! So today, we have yet another kit to introduce that I'm sure will follow the other into sold out-dom. Yeah, that's a word ;-)

Here's what's in this kit: 
Basic Grey Hello Luscious Paper Pack
1 Yard 1-1/2” Yellow Silk
1 Yard 1-1/2” Green Silk
2 Yards Hot Pink Cotton 5/8” Ribbon
1 Yard Hot Pink Crochet Lace
9 Silver Ribbon Slides
70-plus square light and dark pink rhinestones in two sizes

You can find out more about the kits and purchase them HERE. For my card, I'm using one of my favorite Flourishes stamp sets, A Year In Flowers, Set 1. I stamped the pansies on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I'm using Basic Grey's new Hello Luscious paper along with the hot pink cotton linen ribbon from the kit. 

After I colored the image, I cut it out with my Grand Calibur and a Labels Seventeen Nestabilities die and matted it with a Labels Eight die, and the sentiment and mat were cut with Classic Oval dies. To finish it off, I tied a piece of that fabulous hot pink cotton linen ribbon around in a bow. Oooo, that stuff ties like a dream!!! Love it!!
