Flourishes Friday - Never Too Late


It is never too late to have a happy childhood.  :)  I just love this sentiment from the newly released Flourishes - Kids Play set.  I did a rich but clean looking card for today.  This set is perfect for some really wonderful  - yet quick cards don't you think?  I used the new SU Cherry Cobbler ink and paper and paired it with Espresso and some pretty 7Gypsies paper, and then just added some touches of white to make it pop.  The Early Espresso is really a dark color, which is gorgeous on cards, but a little harder to photograph.  I added some pretty embossing to it for some definition.




This was the Mojo Sketch from a few weeks ago, which I thought was so pretty.  There it is clean and simple and pretty.  

Remember today is your last day to purchase the gorgeous New Release Bundle at Flourishes at 10% off!
