Flourishes Noon-Time Challenge


It's release week at Flourishes and it's time for another noon-time challenge. This one is called "Wild and Wonderful"....make a card a little on the rugged side. Use faux leather, "lasso" in some fun trim or give your creation a distressed look...you choose.  When uploading to online galleries, use keyword FLLCSEPTRW2.


For my card, I'm featuring the new Cowboy Christmas stamp set, which is releasing this week.  I made sure to distress all my edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and I added some die-cut Spellbinders stars.  The patterned papers and red ribbon are from the September 1-2-3 Kit.


For more inspiration for today's challenge, be sure to stop by the following blogs...

See ya!

I really, really like this, Denise! Although I'm not usually a fan of western-themed things, I've seen some awesome creations from the Flourishes DT...like this! It makes me rethink the whole western thing. :)
