This time, though, the challenge was "Simply make a card with a sentiment, word or quote as the focal point for your card!" Flourishes has a lovely quote from Monet that i immediately decided had to be the center, and it called out for a spring green (SU's kiwi kiss), which i found on a Stampin' Up! designer series paper from the Bella Rose collection, and then perfect flourishes to complement it in Flourishes autumn set that i stamped in chocolate chip ink, adhered to kiwi kiss cardstock. The ribbon is SU!'s luscious kiwi kiss double-sided ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in kiwi kiss ink on whisper white, sponged with kiwi kiss around the edges. The little blingy flower embellishments are Queen & Company's "sassy sequins" from Joggles.com, my favorite source of all sorts of embellishments.

Card Challenge--"Getting Sentimental"
Flourishes makes extraordinary clear acrylic stamps. Their artwork is of the highest quality, and goes beautifully with all the Stampin' Up! products that i've got like paper, ink, and ribbon. They periodically have challenges and i mostly am uninspired or too much of a beginning stamper to be able to settle on a design in response.
