Flourishes Noon Challenge - Perfect Pear

Hi there!  Hope you've had a great day and you're looking forward to the weekend!  Can't believe it is the week before Christmas!  Yikes!  I am popping in really quickly to share the card I made for the Flourishes Release Week Noon Challenge - Perfect Pear - which was a color challenge.

Here is the inspiration photo for the colors:

Here is my card with the colors:

These colors were perfect for one more Christmas card.  I used some pretty patterned paper from the K & Co. Glad Tidings pad that had the three colors in it. I added an embossed panel of Cryogen White done with the Cuttlebug Mary Ann folder. I stamped the kissing ball image from Flourishes Meet Me Under The Mistletoe set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers.  I colored a second ball to pop up on the first one.    The sentiment is from Flourishes Sentimental Christmas set.  It is cut out and layered with Spellbinders Grommet Tags.  A few adhesive pearls on the ball, the tag and the ribbon finished my card.

Thanks for stopping in again.  Have a terrific evening and weekend!  I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge.


  1. This is just gorgeous Carla! I don't know how I have never seen these grommet tags before, but I will have to order them for sure! I guess they will have to be a little prezzie to myself! :)

  2. This is so elegant and gorgeous Carla!! Love the way you did the sentiment and the embossing is just exquisite! xx

  3. Carla, this is a beautiful card. Love that embossing and the grommet tag. Great design.

  4. All your cards are so beautiful. Colors are so festive. Never seen that embossing folder before it is very lovely behind the kissing ball and you colored it beautifully.

  5. Beautiful! I like how you have the textured panel in the bg, wonderful coloring.

  6. Gorgeous...don't think I've seen a prettier kissing ball. Oh, that reminds me, I have one that should be hanging in the entrance to my living room. It is all silvery and glittery. Watch out anyone who enters! Ha
    Your card is beautiful, Carla.


Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a comment! I really appreciate it! Carla
