And, there will not be just ONE winner. We will actually be choosing FOUR Guest Designers for December!!! Hip hip hooray!!!

The Friends of Flourishes and the Senior Design Team will be voting on their TOP THREE favorite projects once all the entries are in on Monday evening. The designers of those top three projects will be offered three of the four guest designer slots.

So... let's find out what the lovely Broni has in store for our contest and challenge today...

FTTC240 Paper Piecing          

This is a fabulous technique that can be used in all sort of images.  I thought it was perfect to showcase the new release of It's a Wrap. 

I used Color Made Easy cardstock in Emerald Coast for the base and Flourishes classic cardstock in Ivory for the main panel.  I embossed the panel using an embossing folder and stamped the image on Authentique patterned paper from the All Season collection.  I fussy cut around that image, popping up the main bow for dimension and the horizontal "ribbon" piece is flat on the embossed panel.  I then stamped the coordinating tag on a different patterned paper piece from the same collection and popped that up after stamping the sentiment.  I finished the card with some mini Prima flourishes.
