The Crazies Play Bingo with Flourishes

Flourishes is our sponsor for the Crazy4Challenges this week.  That company was so kind to send us sets of stamps to play with......certainly a treat as I've long been a Flourishes fan and customer.



Our Crazy4Challenges challenge this week was to play BINGO.  You had to choose a row, diagonal, or column and include those items in your card.  I chose the row which included a square card, embossing, and brads.  I used this fabulous Violets set from Flourishes.  I kept it pretty simple as I wanted the focus on those beautiful blooms.

I also did this card for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge which was to use pink, lace, ribbon, and one button.

Now be sure to visit the Crazies blog to see the creations of the rest of this fabulous team AND you might alos want to check our Flourishes beautiful stamps.  AND...we would love for you to play BINGO with us this week.




....and here is another card I have to share for today......
This card (sorry for the muddy photo....things weren't cooperating....it is sharp white IRL) is one I did for Speedy's Friends Challenge this week, which is to use embossing of some type.  I used the rrecently released set called Butterflies and Wisteria by Mark's Finest Papers.
