Flourishes Speed Challenge


Fourishes is having a "speed challenge" to celabrate their new releases this month...you (me) have until noon to post a card using their sketch (see below)...well it definately was a speed challenge for me, as I just saw it this morning (thank goodness I subscribe to their blog posts) at 3am...why am I up so early...couldn't sleep and have to be out the door by 7:30....am helping my granddaughter this morning with costume changes for a dance recital...busy~busy!
I used a set I purchased from Flourishes last year called Easter Lily...I kept my lily a true white.....now if I would of had more time, I think I would of embossed it...might try that later tonight...anywho I added some stickles to the petals to give a bit of shine...I add my stickles with a tiny paint brush so I can get it just where I want it...I put a tiny bit of stickles on my leaves as well...see the little butterfly...well who would think a little thing like that could give you so much trouble??  First I had a set all done and on and just didn't like them, so took them off and cut these two from vellum.....well one flew right off and when I went to pick it up I ran over it with my chair...so punched another one and dropped it afer I had put the glue dot on...and its now stuck to the floor.....arggggg......okay I got that out, I feel better.......at least I made the challenge in time...now have everything crossed that I just might win those new sets.....that would be heaven...it's a random drawing so anyone can win...give it a try , you know you want to!!

Amazing you made this card so fast! I couldn't have done it. I'm terrible under pressure. What's more amazing is that it turned out so pretty!

The Easter Lily is just perfect with the purples! Love your butterfly and fibres! It was worth the extra effort :)
