Hi, all! Welcome to Flourishes December Pre-Release Challenge! This challenge is all about girlie :) Lace, pearls, and flouncy ribbons--I think I have all that covered on my card. I'm using the brought-back-by-popular-demand set, Lace and Trim. This is a retired stamp set that is available for a limited time only at only $10 while our limited supply lasts. I stamped the largest image on colored card stock with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then I tied a sheer ribbon around and through one of the Spellbinders Grommet Tags die cuts, stamped on Classic Ivory card stock with a matching image from Country Charm Labels. I added some white pearls at the corners and it was done!

Now you MUST go see what the rest of the Flourishes Senior Design Team has for you:

Stamps: Lace and Trim, Country Charm Labels (Flourishes)
Paper: Classic Ivory (Flourishes); Almost Amethyst (SU!)
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Almost Amethyst (SU!)
Accessories/tools: Grand Calibur, Grommet Tags (Spellbinders); ribbon, pearls, white fine detail embossing powder, heat gun
