Flourishes Fun...

Here with another post!  This week Flourishes is debuting their new stamps for July and boy oh boy is it looking like it is going to be another spectacular release!  My card this time is for two Flourishes challenges:  Timeless Tuesday to use embossing and the Flourishes release week sketch challenge




For this card I used the Flourishes set Wreaths of All Seasons and colored the image with my Copic markers (YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99, Y21, Y23, YR31 and E11.  The color choices were based on the patterned paper that I used for the card.  I recently received the papers in a package of goodies I won in a challenge.  Unfortuately, I do not know who produced these lovely papers, sorry about that!   For the embossing I used a favorite Sizzix embossing folder that creates the beautiful lattice pattern the name of which I do not know, again!  As you can see, I stayed extremely true to the sketch.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Fine Linen & Vintage Cream; Bazzill forest green; PP:  unknown; Stamps:  Flourishes; Dew Drops; Spellbinders Plain & Scalloped Oval dies; PTI Fine Linen Double Stitch ribbon; Sizzix embossing folder
