A Flourishing Thank you

Hi everyone! I've just come back from OnStage, in Brisbane. Three glorious days of Stampin' Up conference, you would think I would be all stamped out but no! Straight back to my craft room. I was good and unpacked first, however it did take a while as I kept going through all my goodies that I was given  AND went through the Occasions catalogue again for the umpteenth time. That list just keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger.

I thought I would push myself and enter another challenge this week so this card is going in the Just Add Ink challenge this week. It's a sketch challenge this week.

This is my interpretation of the sketch.

I've used the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set & coordinating framelits.

Here is a close up of the copper embossing. How did we exist before copper embossing powder? It's the bomb, especially in real life. Number one goal get better at taking photos of cards!!!

Anyway, I really have to run as I haven't done my pre-pre order (they do have a better name for it but it just escapes me right this minute!) for the new catalogue and the cutoff is tomorrow, yikes!!

Cheers Megan xx


  1. Such lovely layers of colour and texture Megan, and I love how you've used the sketch! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  2. Great card Megan. You had me at copper....! Photos look great to me.

  3. All those delicate leafy details are just beautiful Megan and really extend your central panel flower motif! The copper adds a lovely touch of glam too! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

  4. Haha your number one goal and mine are exactly the same, Megan. I need to find the perfect spot in my house and perhaps the rest will fall into place....or wishful thinking, lol. Great card, LOVE the copper embossing, and texture of the burlap. Glad you enjoyed On Stage - me too. Thanks for joining the challenge fun at Just Add Ink. x

    1. Thanks Patrice! I did have the thought of I wonder what the neighbors would think I'd they looked out now.... me running around the garden, with, to them a bit of paper, from one spot to another!

  5. Lovely! I love how you've used the sketch, Megan. The flourishes look great & the copper just makes me happy. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink.

  6. Wow- how beautiful does the copper look with purple? I love all the flourishy die cuts, Megan. Thanks for entering your lovely card in our Just Add Ink challenge this week!
