Flourishing Phrases - Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Welcome back to another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop.  We are so pleased to be back again to share some creations with Flourishing Phrases and the coordinating Flourish thinlits.  

The funny thing with this project is that a few weeks ago, I shared a project for an "open" blog hop - meaning we can use whichever supplies we would like from our Artisan boxes - and I used the exact supplies we are supposed to use for this hop, and then when THIS hop rolled around, I had no ideas!  Yes, even the artisan team gets a mental block sometimes!

I decided since the last project was so bold and graphic, this one would be softer and with more muted colours.

This combination of Tip Top Taupe, Old Olive, and Calypso Coral with a touch of gold works together beautifully.  It's soft and gentle; perfect for a card like this.

Thanks so much for swinging by!  Let's pop over and see what Steffi has whipped up this week.  

Have a fabulous day!

  2. I love these colors together! And you always arrange your elements together so beautifully. Gorgeous project, Shannon!
