Flourishes Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in a blog hop for Flourishes!   Blogger has made the day quite challenging because it absolutely didn't work!  There was no way to make a post last night.   Finally, it's up again!  And I'm home from work to make a post! 

Here's a little blurb from Flourishes:
We don’t need to tell you that tags and labels are two of the trendiest items to hit the card making market in a long time! And, to help you add style and pizzazz to your creations, Flourishes has teamed up with Spellbinders Paper Arts to make sure you have the perfect set of stamps to match a darling set of tag style dies. Wonderfully whimsical and reminiscent of Grandma’s calico prints, Flourishes “charming” set offers three labels that coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Grommet Tags (S4-322). Designed by Becky Fleck, you'll also find 6 beautiful sentiments and 4 accent stamps to dress up your labels! Pair that with Flourishes Country Charm Borders and you have the perfect set to make darling note cards in minutes. Flourishes coordinating Country Charm Borders set features five border strips that match the labels set to a tee. What fun!

This set is called Country Charm Labels.  The labels fit Spellbinders Grommet Tags S4-322.  Great tags and verses for note cards!

This set is Country Charm Borders.  Notice all the coordinating prints in the borders to work perfectly with Country Charm Tags!

I would love to have used both sets for a card but  I just plain didn't have time this week!  Lots of things scheduled and a few things that popped up.  That always throws a monkey wrench in my plans!!! 

My card was created with a label and verse from Country Charm Labels.

I stamped the label first with Versafine Onyx Black and clear heat embossed it.   I cut it out with the matching Spellbinders Grommet Tag.  I added a touch of color to the center with Distress Wild Honey ink.  So easy to do with Spellbinders die templates!!! Leave the paper in the template and add the ink. Perfect!   
I cut 2 more of the tag, one of white and one of black.  These I cut in half lengthwise and added them to each edge of my stamped Grommet Tag.  That's how I got the black and white borders!
I cut several flowers to layer from Spellbinders Rose Creations and Carnation Creations.  I've added a touch on Wild Honey to the petals.  Each has a black wire stem and black brad center.
The DP is from Graphic 45 Curtain Call Collection 8 x 8 pad.  I've added black and white borders.  The yellow card front has a touch of Wild Honey along each edge.

I sure hope you enjoyed your stop here!  So sorry I couldn't get this posted sooner.   Keep hoppin' to see lots of inspiration.   All the blogs listed below.
