With a Flourish

Here's another card for the Less is More challenge. This week it's

time once more. 
The challenge this week is to

Again, I wanted to hang something from this Everything Eleanor flourish.  I seem to be hung up (pardon the pun) on hanging stuff from this flourish. Lol, that's only one of many  hangups!

I couldn't decide on a sentiment.  I'll figure that out later.

I'm liking the way the new Basic Black inkpad works.  It's soooo much easier to get a good inking on the stamp. The only trouble is, I get too impatient and end up with smudges.  I tried heat setting but got smudges doing that.  I'm going to have to remember to leave my projects alone for a while so the ink can dry.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Everything Eleanor, Nature Walk
Ink:  Basic Black
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  Basic Pearl

Be sure to check out all the lovely flourished cards in the Less is More gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit.  I love your visits and comments.

You're making one-layer flourish week look easy! I'm still thinking!

Just beautiful! Love the way the little birdcage looks like it's hanging on the "branch".

That's so cute, Bonnie. It looks like it is hanging from the branch of a tree! Like it's the Rich Bird that lives in the gated community in the better trees!

I'm with you on using inks that have to dry before you can work the rest of your card. Not happening.

Beautiful card, Bonnie! You're making me want that flourish . . . I only have a gazillion already =D
Thanks for the heads up on the SU black ink pad. I've been waiting on reviews before purchasing it.

What a fabulous idea--again!! I love the concept of hanging things from the flourish! That black ink looks really sharp on the card too.

I Love this - I had exactly the same idea with a birdcage, but then I saw yours so I changed to another direction. I'm sure flourishes are meant to have something hanging from them and a birdcage looks perfect!

So pretty, Bonnie. What a great way to hang the cage. Lovely flourish.


Hi Bonnie,
the birdcage looks fabulous suspended from the swirl - a perfect CAS card.

The black and white is so elegant! Great card! It doesn't need a sentiment - it makes a fabulous notecard just the way it is!

Notes by Nina said...

Wow, this is stunning Bonnie. I love the stamps you used and the single pearl is a perfect embellishment.

Susan said...

Love it! That pearl is perfect to "attach" the bird cage to the flourish...lovin that b/w combo too!

Doris said...

I must say, your cards keep getting better and better! This card makes me want to get out my un-inked flourishes and give one a try.

Kelly Griglione said...

Really sweet card, Bonnie. Simple and elegant!

Colleen Dietrich said...

I love flourishes, I love birdcages (especially this one - and mine's never seen ink - naughty of me!), and I love how you put them together, Bonnie!

Aileen said...

This looks fabulous Bonnie. I'm loving this flourish too and your cage with the pearl is just brill. x
