Flourishes October Release Challenge

Flourishes October release is underway, and with that release they are sponsoring a challenge called Christmas with a Twist. The twist is to create a Christmas card or project without using red or green.
I went with a soft color scheme of aqua and cream.

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe stamp set provides the focal point. Using Flourishes cut files, I cut the shape with the Silhouette and then stamped in Toffee Crunch Memento ink. I know I say this every time I use these cut files, but I really do LOVE them! I do hope they will provide more cut files for some of the older sets.  After coloring the ribbon with Copics and adding some pearls for the berries, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added it to the card front (a Silhouette cut file) with dimensional tape. The sentiment is from Flourishes Sleigh Ride.Last, I repeated the roundness of the kissing ball and the bottom edge of  the front and added a little more texture with a circle border cut from aqua felt.

Be sure to check out the release at Flourishes and all the gorgeous and inspiring cards from the design team.
