Flourishes

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with Less is More Challenge. Their challenge concentrates on my most neglected stamps, flourish stamps.  Like my paisleys from a previous post, I need to use them more often. I think I am sensing a New Year's resolution! Anyway, while I think about that here is my card for tonight.

Soft and subtle color highlight the flourish along with the sentiment
and minimal heart embellishments.
One layer with lots of personality! The sentiment was created the negative
of a die I used for a previous card. Never know when you are going to need those scraps.
Fussy cut the bottom the flourish to
give it a bit more dimension.
Entering Challenge:
Less is More: Week 258- Flourish

Yup, still working on my CAS skills. Oh how I wanted to layer this up with all sorts of fussy stuff but had to resist. Hold me back from my die-cutter, rhino bling, and well... everything. But I think at the end of the day it turned out pretty well.

At first, however, I wanted to create a completely white card. I have tried many times and failed all times. This card was planned to be an all white card but it needed color. However, I will persevere and come up with an entirely white card soon. I think I may have one in the works right now (don't hold your breathe).

Time to go to bed. I want to give a big warm thank you for stopping by and I do hope to see you soon. Until then, take care and happy crafting!

All the Best,
Shawna
