Friday's Fall Flourish Free for All!

Suzy's Friday Free-for-All Challenge at Embellish-It Scrapbooking was called Fall's Flourish!

We had to incorporate some kind of flourish into our creation.

I used the Lockhart fishing vest imag
e and coloured it up with my copics. I had some Fancy Pants Papa collection papers left over from September's gallery opening on Embellish-It Scrapbooking, so I sewed some pieces together and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Leafy Branch folder.

I lightly sanded it up and backed it onto some Chocolate chip cardstock and then stamped my sentiment on another piece of the Fancy pants dp and popped it on.

I tucked some fall leaf embellishments - another one of those things I have had forever! - behind the image.

If you look closely, you can see a couple of Quickutz flourishes tucked in there as well, as per the challenge!

Why don't you accept the Fall Flourish challenge, create something with a flourish and add it to our gallery! We'd love to have you!

Hubby fishes a lot so he actually appreciated this card today! He likes all the cards I make -his exact words are "I like it" every time I ask him what he thinks!

Good answer.


  1. Awesome dude stamp. Your colouring really really makes it. It's SO real looking. That must have taken you forever! Love the leaves and the collage of DP too! :O)

  2. LOL about your husband's "I like it" husband's standard is "That's nice." If he really wants to get me excited, he'll add "very". Wooo hooo!

  3. Wow, your coloring is fantastic! I love how you sanded the embossed background.

  4. Awesome card, awesome colours! Great masculine cards, the leaves and flouishes work perfectly together!
