Add a Flourish - Cheery Lynn Design Challenge

I had hoped to complete this week's challenge with my new Cheery Lynn Design die cuts but I couldn't wait til my order came in!!! LOL. This card is for a family friend.  Hope she enjoys it!  I tried a new technique - paper gathering - think I need a whole lot more practice!  Threw in the only flourish die cut I own - but not to worry - lots of new ones to enjoy when I receive my order!! LOL!!


  1. I've been wanting to try that paper gathering technique as well Karen! This is such a cool card, and it turned out so lovely! I love the flourish placement with the pretty center flower too! Thanks for playing in this week's Cheery Lynn Designs challenge! -Karen

  2. Thanks Karen - as a newbie I am figuring out that I can't compete with the creativity that many of CLD 's challengers demonstrate....their creations are amazing! But I can learn.

  3. Karen, this is wonderful, does not look like you need practice. Very stunning! Good luck and thanks for joining in on the fun at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.

  4. This is fantastic! Love this card! Thank you for joining us at Cheery Lynn Challenges!

  5. Hello Karen can you share the link to where you learned the (paper gathering technique)?
    I would also love to try this.
    Your card is beautiful.

    1. Hi Cheryl - sorry for the delay - I don't often get comments. LOL. I love one of the former design teams work and was browsing through her blog Such a Preety Mess and found - tutorial. Here is the link: http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.ca/2013/12/gathered-paper-video-tutorial-card.html
