Hi there,
Today I have a card that I made for the Flourishes Show Me Challenge.  To participate, all you have to do is go to the Flourishes Tutorial Library and find new a technique or project that you'd like to try and make it!  I chose Frames Created With Nestabilities Dies.

Here is my resulting card:

I had a bit of a tough time trying to do the double embossing on the frame as I have a Vagabond, not a Grand Calibur but, it is lightly embossed, just wish I could have gotten it to emboss deeper...other than that, this is a super easy technique and I'll definitely be doing it again!

For the image, I used Zinnias by Flourishes.  It was my first time inking it up and it was lovely to colour...I am really happy with the fall colours I used on this one...

Well, that's it for now...I will be back shortly with another card.  If you would like to know the Specific products that I used, please see the Supply List below.
