Just Flourishing

Good Afternoon all!
Hope you are okay! I am still in bed poorly, tried to go out earlier and nearly passed out, so i'm shackd up in bed again! Booo! I am rubbish at being ill!

But I will distract myself with pretty cards!
This week, although its not technically my design week I have a card for the AI Factory challenge:

This week our challenge to you is

Anything Goes

Don't you just love the freedom! I expect to see hundreds and hundreds of your creations this week hahahaha! :)

You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday May 4th to upload your project at our challenge site.  Feel free to enter it with as many other challenges as you would like, as long as it is a new creation. 

Remember you don’t have to use an AIFactory image, but we would love it if you did. There are even some freebies on the site here.

We got to use this amazing flourishes vector set this week:

and here is what I created:
I absolutely loved playing with these gorgeous butterfly flourishes! Infact it took me a wee while to decide which one I was going to use on my card!

I followed this STUNNING sketch from CPS
Gorgeous isn't it!
So lets show you a few details!

This is the flourish I chose. I changed the colour to be brown, they are black by default. But you can do so much more with them! Be sure to visit the rest of the Design team as their creations are amazing and you can really see the possibilities with these!

So as you can also see I did something funky with the sentiment

I saw a similar sentiment on someones blog while i was hopping recently! I really cant remember who Darnit!
But I love the effect and it works so well on this card!

Last picture for today.... and a shocker! I decorated the inside of my card! :O :O :O

Granted it is matching paper, but I never normally decorate the insides, but in this case I love it! :D
This paper by the way is from an awesome set which again is a FREEBIE by the awesome Summer @ Summertime Designs you can check out the set called Spring in Your Step HERE

The papers are just beeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful!

So thats it for now!
Just leaves me to mention the all important:

The card ingredients

Stamp: Butterfly Cluster Brushes from AI Factory

Inks and things: All Computer Ink

Papers: Spring in Your Step by Summertime Designs

Odds and Sods: Vellum, brown card and  crop-o-dile/eyelet.
