Birthday Celebration at Flourishes

I am back for a second post on this beautiful Saturday....hope you are having a great weekend.

While floating around blogland this week, I came upon Flourishes 5th Birthday Celebration and since I have several sets of their stamps that needed some love, I decided to play along with their challenges...this is just one of them, be sure and check out all of the rest and watch for my posts with the other 3 cards I am creating.  

I am also back for a go at another  Moxie Fab World Card Design Handbook challenge: Movement.  

I am having so much fun creating for both of these sites! It is challenging and fun to stretch yourself every once in a while. Be sure and take a look at Moxie Fab, you will learn so much and be sure and check out my post earlier this week featuring another of their challenges.

Using Flourishes set "Spring Ephemerals Collection 1" for my main image which I heat embossed with white embossing powder and chalks for my background I created a soft flowing base for the butterflies.
These were happy leftovers from my new set of Spellbinders dies.

I used the same curved rectangle Spellbinder die for the inside, adding embossed and die cut butterflies from a Stampin' Up embosslit die with liquid pearls.

Now, I need to run to the grocery store and get dinner started but hope to have some more time to create the rest of my cards and get them posted soon. 

Be sure and stop by Flourishes and Moxie Fab to check out all of the great challenges going on this week. Flourishes doesn't end until August 31 and you have until September 24 to get your cards linked at Moxie Fab!
