Flourishes Customer Appreciation Blog Hop!


'Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday dear Flourishes ... Happy Birthday to YOU!'

Flourishes is lighting the candles and getting ready to sing to honor their fourth birthday! And, as a way to celebrate, I’m happy to say I was hand-picked to help them have a bit of a party as a designer for their customer appreciation hop! The only challenge here was to create a card or project using my favorite Flourishes stamp set(s). Read on – I’ll tell you how you can win some Flourishes goodies too!


What goes better together than birthday celebrations and cupcakes!  For this little sweetie pie, I used Flourishes Birthday Pennants, Let Them Eat Cake and Lace Edges stamp sets - love them!!!


The addition of some yummy tea-stained seam binding, glitter, rhinestones, lace trim and a pretty little paper doilie complete this bright, fun and festive birthday celebration card!


I just love the pink, aqua, hot pink and cream color palette on this card!  Isn't that banner pretty?  I used the coordinating Spellbinders dies to cut the banner shapes.


What can you win? Take a peek at this fun and festive blog candy!
