Flourishing Phrases for Simple Sunday

It’s going to be a fun filled day for me.  My daughter will be in town today — love that girl!  And, I will get to  watch the Collegiate Band Festival.  I love marching bands!  So, I’ll be spending my day outside on this beautiful Fall day.  But, I’ll remember my sunscreen — I’m still peeling from that sunburn I got at the first football game of the season.

I have a lovely, simple card for you today that is the result of my supplies being out from a couple of previous creations.  I love when that happens!

My card starts with a Tip Top Taupe base that measures 4-1/4″ x 11″.  It is scored at 5-1/2″ so that you get a top fold card.

I’ve added a 2-1/2″ x 5″ piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

Over that is a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Petals and Paisleys designer paper.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla.

Then, I stamped the flourish from Flourishing Phrases in Rich Razzleberry.

The circle was added to the card front using Dimensionals.

I’ve embellished with a 3-1/2″ piece of Gold 1/4″ Natural Trim layered with a Delightful Dijon element cut with the Paisley Framelits.  These pieces were attached to each other with the Handheld Stapler before using a little Fast Fuse to attach them to the circle.

Finally, there are 3 Gold Glimmer Paper pieces that are cast offs from using the Flourish Thinlits on a Christmas card earlier this week.  They made me think of petals falling.
