The Flowering Flourishes stamp set is new to the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  This set just arrived at my home on Monday and this was my first opportunity to play with the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set.  I think I've definitely fallen in love with this stamp set and I'm certain you'll see more in the future. 

SQSC 45 – Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set

Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set

The base of this card starts with Very Vanilla Card Stock followed by a layer of First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper which I sponged with Crumb Cake along the edges.  The three larger rectangles are Pool Party Card Stock layered with Very Vanilla with the large image stamped from the Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set.  Then I used one of my favorite In-Color Ribbons with the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon tied with a bow and a tag attached which is punched out using the Jewelry Tag Punch (another favorite of mine!)…

This is a fun card with a good, basic sketch from the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge.  New stampers can easily find inspiration and get started with this sketch while advanced stampers can find a challenge by bringing this sketch up a notch with layers and embellishments.

Here is the sketch for this weeks Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge!  I hope you take the time to participate.  Click on the sketch to participate in the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge.
