Pinter-Inspiration Challenge

Good morning friends! I created this card for Flourishes' noontime challenge posted yesterday!  This is the picture they found on Pinterest to inspire us in some way...

To digress a bit...if you haven't discovered the fun in creating your own boards and saving photos for future reference on the Pinterest website, you really must check it out!  I have gotten endless recipes, papercrafting ideas, and even a photo of a hairstyle that I took to my hairdresser the last time I got my hair cut - lol! 

Since pink/black/white is one of my fave color combinations, I knew I wanted to start with that.  Lil' Inker Designs has just released this large flag die, so that was another element I included.  The picture has an overall feminine theme with the elegant ribboned cameo necklace and the bling of the earrings, so I chose to use the Fleur de Lis Nestie to frame this lenten rose image - so fun to color with Copics!  I fussy-cut the image and popped it with foam dots then added some sparkle with Diamond Stickles to the centers.
So, I'm crossing my fingers and toes that maybe...just maybe...I'll win some new stamps.  Have you seen the glimpse of the new sets to be released soon by Flourishes?  OMG...the design team has really outdone themselves with the sneak peeks this week!

STAMPS: Lenten Rose (Flourishes), Kids Play (Flourishes)-sentiment
PAPER: Yours Truly by Echo Park, Black, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Flag die by Lil' Inker Designs, Fleur de Lis Nestabilities, Copics (RV32, RV34, RV93, Y18, YG91, YG93, YG95, BG0000, B0000, C0, C1), Raspberry Fizz ribbon by PTI, Diamond Stickles.
