Flourishes and Diamonds

It's Monday and there's a new challenge over at the Make My Monday Challenge. We continue with the Romance theme and for Week #38, our specific challenge is "Flourishes and Diamonds." True confession: When flourishes hit the scene in the mid 2000s, I absolutely thought I had to have such a stamp. By the time I bought a set, I think I missed the wave. I rarely use them. So it was kind of interesting to unearth them for this challenge. I began with a mushroom colored card base, stamped flourishes by Autumn Leaves with Black StazO Ink. Black lace and vintage black seam binding were layered onto the card base followed by a white doily. The clip art image is from Love Letters 1 by Crafty Individuals and is mounted with black paper. A sentiment was added by Stampsmith to a Martha Stewart Label and attached to the card front. Rhinestones were added to the card front along with black seam binding bows and a vintage inspired rabbit die cut. Wishing each of you a wonderful week. Best wishes, Yvonne
