Flourishes Wednesday Release Week Challenge

The Scavenger Hop Graphics
This noon time challenge will have you going on a bit of a hunt and that’s why we are calling this our Scavenger Hop! Each one of the 8 designers’ blogs (including the Flourishes Blog) will have a different “ingredient” that you will need to include on your challenge creation!

Here’s my card, using all of the “ingredients”. I stamped the Hollyhocks image on
Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers from the Lenten Rose Collection and the Evergreen Collection.

Then I cut it out with my Grand Calibur and my Labels Seventeen Nestabilities. I added some lace and this pink ribbon, and tied on a sentiment  tag before popping the image up on foam dots.

I added another sentiment and more pretty paper inside.

And, here’s my clue!!!
