Flourished Holiday Card

This is a card that I did with my new set from Flourishes called "Forest of Trees". I kept it simple, but I like how it turned out. This set has a lot of possibilities, and I'm sure you've seen several cards lately using one of the images from this set. I've got some ideas for more as soon as I get a chance to do them. I stamped the tree with Dark Hunter ink on White CS. I used Ruby Red for the background paper, stamped in red with a flourished design from Flourishes "Rejoice" set. The green paper is also Dark Hunter and I attached black brads down either side of it. The lace punch is Martha Stewart's Lace Punch. The "Joy" sentiment is also from the Rejoice set stamped in gold. The ribbon is May Arts Dark Red Sheer ribbon, also from Flourishes. The main CS is River Rock.
Tomorrow I hope to post one from another new set. Thanks for stopping by.

Holiday Series, Part III

Well, here is the last in my series. I really do like this set, and will probably do a version of these for my Thanksgiving cards, so hurray - I've already started. My next two posts are more Holiday featuring my new stamps from Flourishes. I'm really trying to use them as I get them and not let them sit idle.
I also got "tagged" yesterday, but I'm awaiting some final information before posting that. But, I wanted to finish the series and keep up with my posting. Happy Friday and thanks for looking and for the encouraging comments. They always brighten my day.
