Hello Flourish

I can honestly say, this has got to be one of my very favorite BIG stamps of all time, it's the Fabulous Flourish stamp from Hero Arts:

Hello Fall Flourish

It was not picked up for pubs, so I can share with you now. I've seen folks use it in a non-embossed look as well, and it looks 'fab' indeed. So versatile. I need to play with it more and see what other looks I can come up with. Enjoy, and hope your weekend got off to a good start!

S5449 - Fabulous Flourish.

Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink.
Butterfly: Making Memories/Paper Reverie/Sienne.
Button: Basic Grey.
Ribbon: PTI.
Gold Kiss Sparkler: Webster's Pages.
Tim Holtz inks: Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick, and Spice Marmalade.

Not sure if you know, but cards submitted to CARDS can appear online before you submit them - you just have to take them down if they're accepted. ;) One of the reasons I love that mag.
