A Little Twinchie Fun

Happy it's another Flourishes Friday :)  Today we're beginning our pre-release challenge for a great set of new stamps to be released a week from today!  You will LOVE them too!

So, what's our challenge?  What's 2 by 2 and loves to take center stage? It's a "twinchie" and it's what our release week challenge is all about. To take part, all you need to do is make a 2 by 2 inch segment the focal point on your card.   I liked them so much I had to make 2 Twinchies the focal point of my card!

Actually there are a lot of Flourishes stamps that are perfect for this challenge because so many of our stamps have the image in different scale sizes.  I took out this beautiful Lilac set and inked the smaller lilac blooms twice and colored them with Copic Markers (Petunia and Meadow Collections)   I took my color palette from this yummy new Basic Grey Paper Green at Heart, it's a perfect match to Razzleberry and Melon Mambo cardstock from SU. 


Below you can see the fluttering butterflies and the fancy flourish edges.  Two types of ribbon too - dotted sheer in Apple Green (which I LOVE!) and Scalloped Edge in Bright Pink.  Ok, so maybe the two ribbons were a little overkill, but it's a bright card :) 


So now I KNOW you want to jump in and create with Twinchies too!  You have until Friday, April 16th at 5 PM EST to enter for your chance to win our entire April release! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't please play along anyway. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCAPR10. Keep in mind, in order to be eligible, you need to link your creation to the Flourishes blog post using the inlinkz linky. Good luck! We can't wait to see what you create!

Here's the links to all the other fabulous Flourishes DT girls and their Twinchie creations today!
