6th Birthday Celebration

Hi all and welcome to the 5th Challenge in Flourishes 6th birthday celebration.  Today the entire Flourishes Design Team is jumping on the birthday band wagon and helping Flourishes light the candles and roll the music to celebrate SIX fun-filled, creative years! Today's challenge is all about the right recipe for your cards. So, all you need to do is check out our recipe card below and make sure you use all six items. We're calling this challenge -- The SIX for SIX -- six items for six years!


Can you believe I used this green cardstock?  I am still in shock myself!  I have been trying to step outside my normal comfort zone and use things that I wouldn't normally use.  That, and I was all out of that pretty peachy colored cardstock.  Ha!  As you see below, I decorated the inside.  For years, every time I would make a card and show it to my husband, he would open it up and look inside.  He finally said one day that he didn't know why he did that because I never decorated the inside.  WELL....to his surprise one day, he opened one up and it was all purdy on the inside as too!  ;)



SUPPLIES USED:

 So, without further ado -- the recipe!
