Challenge #129 - Use Flourishes in Your Project.

Gini here:
With spring well and truly here in deepest darkest Shropshire, England I thought we could think about flourishing things for this challenge.
You can interpret this theme in two ways;

either use a flourish(es) in your project 
or create a project based on what makes you flourish as a person.

I chose to use physical flourishes on the cover and behind the flowers inside a box card for my MIL.

Click on the pictures to make them bigger full details of the project ingredients on my blog if you want to know what I used.

Let's see what all the other wonderful poobahs have come up with for this challenge.

Jana here. I want to make sure you are sitting down for this one. Are you comfy? OK, now put down the coffee/soda/water. All set down? Okay, you have been warned, and I am NOT responsible for ruined keyboards.

I made a CARD. Yup. I pulled out the paper and glue, and made a card. (Actually made two, but you'll have to go to my blog to see the other one.)
There. That should hold me for another while...

Deena here - I love to use flourishes in my projects and all the flourish items and paper pieces are left over bits from other projects...that is a huge bonus in my books!  The more scraps I use up the better...they are taking over my space and a goal of mine is to use up the bits and pieces this another project done with the leftovers is awesome!

Rosemary here and my project is a paper pieced card. I decided to use a flourish as an element in my motif, it's the branch that my owl is perched upon..  There are flourishes in the patterned paper background as well.

You have until the end of Saturday 5 May to join in with your fabulous creation celebrating flourishes or something that makes you flourish. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused. 
We look forward to visiting you!
