This week Challenge at Flourishes is Christmas In July with a Catch, the catch is to have your card semi flat. What a fun challenge I love starting my Christmas cards in July it makes you start feeling the season!!! I used Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe stamp set. This set is just so pretty, I used Prisma Watercolors to color my image, added a little stickles to the mistletoe and a few small silver dots to finish it off. I usually have a lot of dimension to my cards so this was a bit of a challenge!

MDS MONDAY is to use the above sketch for your card or page. Since we had just been to the waterpark and I had taken some cute picture, I choose to do a page. This was a fun challenge and turned out so cute. I just love my grandchildren and they always make for a cute page. Have a great week everyone!!

The 4th Birthday Challenge at Flourishes is Color My World. The challenge was to create your own background using ink. The Beach Life stamp set from Flourishes was a perfect match for a beautiful sunset with a beautiful sky. Using Stampin Up's inks Summer Sun, Apricot Appeal, Lavender Lace and Ballet Blue I created the summer sky at sunset. The sun was created using an 1 inch punch and the refreshing drink is stamped and colored with copic markers. I used sponges and blended the inks. The end results are just beautiful!! I can picture a beautiful summer evening as the sun is setting!! Hope you all are having a wonderful day. Remember to check in on Flourishes as the Birthday Celebrations continue.
So onto the next Birthday Challenge for Flourishes 6th Birthday!!! It's A Little Christmas In July, how fun! I used Poinsettia and Pine stamp set from Flourishes. I used the small pine stamp for my background paper and stamped it with Old Olive from Stampin Up. The main images was colored with copic markers and embellished with stickles for that little sparkle. I just love this stamp set it is so pretty.
