The Flourishes challenge is a "bingo" challenge, ie pick three items in a row. I went with the middle row of embossing, pink and pearls. I recently got some new SU! designer papers and paper embellishments from the Beau Cheateau line. Love the soft pink, blue, brown and cream colors in this line of dp. Absolutely perfect for a shabby chic look. I embossed the patterned paper which created a bit of a problem for me because when I was trying to apply the adhesive the first piece ripped horribly... as in unable to save it!! So, embossed another piece and tried to be a bit more careful when I applied the adhesive. The butterfly image is from the SU! set Strength & Hope. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the set will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation... a very worthy cause. The SSIC challenge asked us to use three of the following: ribbon, button, brad, swirl, hat pin, charm or popped up image. I went with a brad, the ribbon and popped up the image.
