Happy Birthday Flourishes Challenges!!


 


Flourishes is turning 6!!  And starting today, there's going to be a series of challenges for the next 2 weeks in celebration.  The official anniversary is July 27th and up until that day -- we are going to have a blast honoring each and every one of those years!  

Today's challenge is being hosted by Allison, on the Flourishes blog, and she wants drama in "Black and White".  I thought it would be fun to use the newly released Anemones images with the beautiful sentiment "With tender prayers for your hurting hearts".  It was all stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento).  I embossed the base panel with a Swirly Sizzix Embossing Folder, and I made the flower using the two smallest Grand Peony Creations dies by Spellbinders.  I used Black Seam Binding for the trim along with a Martha Stewart Border punch, and finished it off with a little sparkle with some Star Dust Stickles and an itty bitty rhinestone.

For some more B/W inspiration, check out a few of the other DT members' blogs:  Cindy, Heather, and Maki


Now, we'd love for you to join us in celebrating and here's how: Check out the
