CardMaker Flourishes Blog Hop

CardMaker Flourishes Blog Hop
Good morning!  Today the CardMaker team is featuring the company Flourishes, along with their own designers, and I hope you have been enjoying the hop thus far!  I got the adorable set Simply Charming.  The fun thing was, a sweet friend gave me a lovely charm bracelet for my birthday around the same time i received the stamps, so I was able to make her a super customized thank you card!


This set includes a long bracelet (which can bend a bit to change the orientation on the card) plus lots of charms to add to it, depending on the occasion.  I added a greeting to the heart locket, and of course some bling!  I colored the bracelet and charms with Copics C-3,and BV23,  accented the heart with R22 and R27, and then used a pale blue B21 instead of gray for the shadows so it wouldn't run together as much with the grays in the bracelet.
Now please continue on to Flourishes, the final stop on today's hop and see what they have in store for you,  a nice giveaway of their May release, valued at more than $70!  :) 

Thank you Flourishes for sponsoring!
