OLW9 - Flourishes


It's Wednesday so one of my 1st blog hops was to check out the One Layer Challenge at Susan's. She's asked us to use a flourish of some kind on our 1 layer cards.

I dug around in my stamp drawers and couldn't find much that fit the bill ... nothing that's big and scrolling and lovely like her example for the challenge!

I love blue so decided to use this Inkadinkadoo bird and flower flourish mini stamp and add faux blue sapphires to accent the centers of the tiny flowers.

Beautiful little Blue Bird!

Inkadinkadoo stamps usually have lots of great flourishes, just like the one you chose!! and what a great color to pick - looks like the wind is helping the bird fly!

I love that flourish with a bird in it...your colours are awesome too...and I think the sentiment you chose is perfect with the flourish stamp.

Susan said...

Now that's a pretty stamp! And it looks so good in the blue!
