Flourishes Friday Bundle of Letters

Hello Friends!  So glad it's Friday!  We have a long weekend here too for which I'm really grateful for!

We're at another Flourishes Friday and I have another sample to show you from the most recent New Releases at Flourishes .  I wanted to try something a little more warm and masculine with this beautiful set "From the Desk Of".  




I picked up the colors from these pretty sheets of Capella paper by Basic Grey, and colored up the letters and envelopes with Copic Markers.  I gave it some sponging as well with some Ranger Pumice Stone Distress Ink.    Then I frame the image with some pretty Nesties shapes Squares, Lacey Squares and Diamond shapes.  




Then I think what makes the card is the Crochet Velvet Ribbon, and the ribbon slide.  It gives it a real richness.  I really like all the neutrals together too.  


So...remember today is your last day to be able to purchase the New Release Bundle at a Discount!


And don't forget about the Gambler's Sale Going on right now too...prices are now marked down to 20% off!  A great time for some awesome deals!
Now head on over to the rest of our fabulous design team to check out their Flourishes Friday creations!

I just love the way that wide velvet looks in the ribbon slide! Of course, I love everything else about this, too. Chocolate brown is one of my favorite colors. You've tinted your image with just the right shades of color to make it stand out, yet stay soft at the same time. Move over, guys, I'm a girl and I LOVE this card!
