Flourishes Secret Swapper

Well...how was your Christmas everyone?
We've had some great time with our family, extended family and Church family.

Today I have some fun things to show you. Back in late November the Flourishes girls decided to do a Secret Swapper Exchange, sending each other cards for Christmas.

Here is the beautiful card I received from Nancy Kirk, one of THE Flourishes :) . It's gorgeously stamped and embossed in golds against the whites, such a dramatic and elegant card! Thank you so much Nancy it's a treasure!

And here is the card I sent...Nancy and I both used the same set All That Glitters, can you tell I was in a bit of a crazy mood! It's for my friend and fellow Flourishes girl Betty Wright. She's so much fun that I wanted to create something a bit whimsical for her. And I had this cool Basic Grey paper...so the card just sort of took over from there!


Check out the Flourishes Newsletter to see all the swap cards today!
Blessings on all of you! I'm drawing for my Blog Candy tomorrow...today is your last chance to enter! HERE

Christine - how did you color in the ornaments on the second card? They are gorgeous! Did you use SU markers or copics, maybe?
