Flourishes Web Celebration - Day 1

Hello everyone~ The exciting week has begun at Flourishes!! Some of you have already known that Flourishes has just renewed their home page and Flourished DT and FOF are celebrating all week long with fun challenges and giveaways at Flourishes blog (it's also a new home)!! I hope you will play along one, two or all challenges with us.

Here is the detail about Day 1 challenge:

Day 1: Flourishes has been waiting to officially unveil its new home on the web for months and this week we're kicking off five days of fun and games to celebrate the big event! Today's challenge is a bit sketchy – literally. PageMaps.com hostess and Flourishes artist Becky Fleck whipped up a special sketch just for our celebration! Use it for your own creation, link up on the challenge post of Flourishes blog and you could walk away the winner of our day one drawing for a goody bag from Flourishes (it's a fun-filled surprise!). If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword FLLCCEL1. You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards!

Isn't it a fantastic sketch? I'm so happy I finally inked the new set, From the Garden :):) The image was stamped on the watercolor paper and water-colored with reinker. Then the image was paper toiled on the classic ivory mat. I used the designer paper from Basic Gray Nook & Pantry (I know I've used them a lot, lol). The yellow mat was embossed with the embossing folder and the top & bottom part were zig-zag stitched. I embellished with the red plaid ribbon, S-swirl clips and rhinestones.

Now, check out what these Flourishes DT and FOF's created using the sketch!!
