Festive Flourishes Friday!


"Don't be so "blue" this holiday season! Join us for week three of the Festive Flourishes Friday Challenge! The theme is just as it sounds ~ "You'll be doing alright with your Christmas of white but I'll have a blue, blue Christmas!" Grab your favorite Flourishes stamp set and dress it up with a dose of blue! It doesn't have to be a Christmas card! Any style will do!Remember, you can join into our challenge at any time and, if you make up past challenges and complete all four - your name will be thrown into the hat for a free stamp set of your choice! Link your card HERE to a blog post or your SCS gallery. Don't forget the keyword FFFC3 on Splitcoast! Of course, we'd love it if you added the FLLC keyword too so that your work shows up in the company gallery!"

The pine cones were embossed with gold powder. They were stamped onto brown cardstock. Then I colored the bottom with a gold color pencil, and the top with a white pencil. Then I punched a hole in the top of each of them and hung them from the top bow.
Stop by and check out what the rest of the team has created:
Becca Feeken
Betty Wright
Cindy Haffner
