Be Progressive Challenge


Hello Friends!  Did you see the start to something fun here on the Flourishes blog? It's a Progressive Card Making Challenge that will have you waiting on the edge of your seats for day-long clues and... at the same time.... giving you more ways to win our November Release! If you missed the first step, just click HERE to get caught up and read up on why we decided to kick off this progressive challenge! Are you ready for Step 2????? Here goes with what I've created, and then I'll describe how it goes!


I've pulled together this pretty sketch and some monochromatic colors with our Flourishes Color Made Easy Emerald Coast collection in paper, ink, seam binding ribbon and copic markers  to create this card.  It would be a great accompaniment to a little home made treat for someone you love.  

I colored up the apron from our wonderful Fresh Baked stamp set, and cutting it out with the Silhouette Cut File made for this set. Does that ever work awesome with the Silhouette Cameo!  I used some of the pretty other elements from the set onto the cardstock as my background with Teal Zeal Memento Ink, and then accented with some Kaiser Sparklets in Sea Breeze.    


So here's where you come in....
 
STEP 1: Simply use this sketch! Just that easy!

STEP 2: Use a Monochromatic Color Scheme! Need some inspiration? Check out our COLOR MADE EASY System! Once you are done with Step 1 and Step 2, be sure to link up your creation below using the Inklinkz widget.   Here's a picture of the Color Made Easy Collection I used:




HERE'S THE CATCH!!! If you want to be eligible for ALL FOUR ways to win, you need to be progressive and add your creation to each step of the challenge. You can make 4 cards or wait until all four steps are revealed and incorporate all four steps into one card. BUT, even if you only make one card using all the steps, you need to link it up on all four posts. Random.org will chose four winners so we want to make sure you are counted for each step you used on your creation! If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCNOV12 as your keyword for all four parts to this challenge. You have until next Friday, November 16th at 5PM EST to enter – so get those creative juices flowing! You have a shot at four sets valued at more than $60! Woo hoo!

For all the details, be sure to also check out Tammy Hershberger's blog too. She is also showing off Steps 1 & 2 as well today!
And don't forget about the Gambler's Sale!  All Sale items are marked down this week to 20% off!
