Black & White

Flourishes is turning 6!  And to celebrate, we have two weeks full of challenges and ways to win some Flourishes goodies!  If you can't tell by my card, the challenge is Black & White.  All details are below.



Unfortunately, my uncle (my dad's brother) passed away Saturday morning.  I made this for my father, I thought the black and white was a great color combo for this card.  I used black, white and some tonal grays.  The gray stripped patterned paper was run through my machine with a pretty embossing folder.  I kept this very simple and easy to mail.


SUPPLIES USED:

BirthdayCelebration-1

A couple of the other girls on the Sr. Design team have creations for you to take a look at


HOW TO PLAY: Create a little drama on your card by using the bold combo of black and white. Create a card, a 3-D item or even a scrap page. It doesn't matter as long as you show off your black and white creation and link it up below using our Inlinkz widget! For this Birthday Celebration Challenge, enter as many times as you like. If you upload to an online gallery, use the keyword FLLCBC1. You have until 11:59 PM CST on July 31st to enter! Winners will be announced Saturday, August 3rd and winners will receive a goody bag from Flourishes valued at $30!  So, get those fingers inky and when you're done, be sure to link up your creation below!
