The Corrosive Challenge #136 - With a Flourish


I know Halloween is tomorrow (and I still have cards to make), but since we're in the middle of a freak autumn Nor'easter here that is supposed to dump a foot of snow on us this weekend, I thought I'd make a wintry card for the new Corrosive Challenge. Our theme for this fortnight is "With a Flourish". That means we want to see you incorporate a flourish into your project. It can be die cut, chipboard, sticker, bling, stamp, paper, whatever. The type of flourish is yours to decide! I opted for bling since it is one of go-to embellishments. My gorgeous angel image is courtesy of one of our fabulous sponsors for this month, Karen's Doodles. Isn't she pretty? She is paired with some designer paper from Stampin' Up.

You would think being snowed in I would have gotten a lot of crafting done... Not the case. I spent a majority of yesterday on the couch watching TV or playing with the small man. It was nice to just relax and watch the snow swirl around outside. There is always something magical about the first snow fall, even if it could put a crick in our trick or treating plans for Monday! Welcome to New England! lol

I hope to get some crafting and baking done today. I also plan to make my home-made stuffed shells for dinner. It might be a bit ambitious, though, as I'm sure I will spend some serious time shoveling later today. My son has new boots and snow pants, both acquired just this past week, so we will get bundled up to brave the elements.

Be sure to stop over at The Corrosive Challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has to show you in way of inspiration and, of course, to play along. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Great job Regan. Your card is beautiful. I have that image but couldn't picture it colored or on a card. Now after seeing this I will be using it for sure. Love your card.
