Shimmerz is Flourishing!

This is my 2nd blog post for the day. Please scroll down to see the Little Paper Shop Monday challenge.

The Shimmerz Design Team got a wonderful opportunity to do a little swap with the Flourishes design team! We had the privelege of using Flourishes stamps, and the Flourishes team played with Shimmerz :) The two together make a fabulous combination.

For my card I used the set "Home Tweet Home" from Flourishes. This set is absolutely gorgeous. The fabulous branch had me sold the second I saw it. I stamped the branch and cut it out. The leaves are painted with Green Olive Shimmerz. I sponged the cloud background and sprayed it with Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spirtz and then glue down the branch. The bird was stamped and colored and then cut out and glue down to the branch also. Throw in some Basic Grey pearls, May Arts ribbon and some Cuttlebugged cardstock and viola! I was really happy with how this turned out.
Be sure to check out the Shimmerz blog to see what the other design team members made with their Flourishes stamps!
