Dreams Flourish

I don't use my flourishes enough, I forget how they are special on their own or as part of another design.

This one-layer card starts with a smooshed base made from distress inks and perfect pearls.  This flourish stamp, which I have had for years as part of a set but never used before, is the perfect shape for the smoosh.  I gold embossed the flourish and the sentiment (which jumped out of the box begging to go on here).

Flourish Stamp: Hero Arts
Sentiment stamp:  Penny Black

Your flourish and smoosh were meant to go together Carole, and the sentiment needed to be there too :-). So glad you listened to your stamps as this card is fabulous.
