Here is a fun sketch for a card from the MDS Monday blog. Part of the challenge was to use flourishes. Once I added the flourishes to my card, they reminded me of fireworks. So I made the card into a Happy New Year card. Here is the result.
I started with a base of Winter Frost Designer Series Paper pattern 11. Then I added the curvy square frame 2 punch from the Convention 2012 Photobook Template and filled it with pattern 12 of the Winter Frost dsp. The flourishes are Autumn Elements flourish 4 with the smallest basic rhinestones resized even smaller and placed on the tips of the flourishes. I think I will have to make this into a hybrid card to send out to some friends. All those rhinestones would really sparkle! Be fore-warned! This project has many, many layers and you have to be patient as your computer works on the project. Sorting through all the layers takes a lot of time!!!
