Create CCMC421 Flourishing Phrases Sketch

Today I'm joining another Create with Connie & Mary challenge,
number CCMC421.  Their challenges always get me going and this sketch is very interesting!
As is often the case, I lean towards the Flourishing Phrases set
on page 49, with the coordinating Flourish Thinlits.
This new catalog bundle sure does get a lot of love
from card makers!  The Hardwood background was used
on the first layer, to add a little texture.
The colors used for this card include Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky,
Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim.  I added a circle from
2016-18 Envelope Paper on page 176 and a bit of 
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (p 175) under the flowers.
Embellishments include the Enamel Shapes on page 177
and 3/8 inch Glitter Ribbon from page 37 of the 
upcoming Holiday catalog.  I LOVE this Glitter Ribbon,
because it really brightens a card, with minimal effort!!
It is sturdy enough to attach with a little tape runner,
so that you have a ribbon accent, without the bulk of a bow.
