I'll play my best for Him

The newest Flourishes images are now available at Stamper's Dream, and they're fabulous. A few of us have some projects to share with you to show you what's available.

I used the instruments from the Toy Soldier set. My two kids and I all play instruments. In fact, my daughter just taught herself how to play French Horn two years ago and loves it. So I was immediately drawn to the instrument images. They're stamped with Versamark onto watercolor paper, colored with Tombows, and framed with the Labels 1 Nestabilities (Spellbinders). The dp is Spiceberry (Memory Box), and the Ribbon is May Arts. Not sure about the brad in the center of the bow, it was in my stash, not labeled, and I think the rhinestone flourishes are Heidi Swapp. I also used Birchtone Light and Medium for matting and the card base, and Rhinestones on the drum and in the corners by Zva Creative and Kaisercraft.

For the inside, I sewed three panels together, and framed the sentiment with Labels 1 Nestabilities (Spellbinders). The border punch is by EK Success.

That about sums it all up for this card. Be sure to check out what the other girls have created. Amy, Laurie

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic weekend!
