BBTB2/CindyLoo/Flourish

This week's BBTB2 challenge is Reader's Choice and Heather elected to select Cindy Loo for the Cricut cartridge and we were to design with the flourish. I don't have Cindy Loo but there are a gazillion carts that have some sort of flourish. I cut mine from Home Decor. It's a delicate flourish and I placed it under one of the flower dies on the same cartridge. I had some snippets of paper in my scrapbin, I set the flower upon two Nestie mounts and I added a rubber stamp sentiment. This "just a note" sentiment is among my faved because we can't have too many cards for just a sweet note, can't we? I had a leaf in the tray and before I could think about it, I glued it down under the flower. I chided myself for doing this because the green leaf and the green scroll are not compatible color ranges. Too late.... it was securely glued onto the card and there was no going back. The flower has about 4 layers but they don't really show up. The center of the flower has 4 red jewels.
Don't forget.... you can join in on our BBTB2 challenges. You can use any cartridge that has a flourish, just add your card to Mr. Linky so we can enjoy seeing it. Thanks for visiting. Always love to see you.

Aren't we our own worst critics? Such a silly thing for you to fret about...the green of that leaf. Totally unfounded. I think it looks great along with everything else on your card. You're such an inspiration to me and so are your designs. Well done, friend!!!
