BBTB2/Flourish

Welcome to my presentation of our BBTB2 weekly challenge. Our hostess, Julie H from across the pond, has asked us to design with flourishes from Cindy Loo. If you don't have Cindy Loo, that's okay, ...just design a card using any Cricut cartridge flourish. Join us by uploading your new card with Mr. Linky, link it to your blog with the card for this challenge, give BBTB2 a shout out that you have joined in the fun, and tell us the cartridge you used. If you haven't done so, please turn the word verification off so we can leave comments easily.


I used my newest Cuttlebug embossing folder on my blue base card... Oh my, I love this beautiful embossing. The flourish is from Cindy Loo. I cut the shadow in white while the flourish is in a beautiful rich brown cardstock. I added a few little blue ribbons and those pretty pink flowers are the Spellbinder's Flower. I added a pretty gold jewel for the center, and the flower layers have been embossed as well.

Thanks for visiting me... I hope that you have come my way from BBTB2 and I know you enjoyed seeing the wonderful cards and projects from our design team. Have a wonderful week, my friends.

This is so pretty, Carole. I love how you placed the flourish within the embossed frame. You ARE the queen of embossing. No one does it better. I can't for the life of me remember to get my Cuttlebug out of the cupboard. Excellent job, my friend.
