I so love Michelle Zindorf’s style.  She makes the most unique and stunning cards.  So for my card today I decided to try following one of her many fantastic tutorials.  The one I chose can be found here.  I changed (or should I say omitted) some steps to make it more beginner friendly!  lol  Thank you, Michelle!


I used a tree image from one of Flourishes most recently released sets, “Forest of Trees”.  I also used Flourishes “Flourished Elements” and “Flourished Words” sets.  That yummy ribbon is by May Arts.


And finally I just had to post a close-up-taken-in-the-sunlight picture of the Flower Soft product that can be purchased at Flourishes.  This stuff is so cool and adds so much texture and interest.  Plus it’s so easy to use.  (But be sure to turn off all fans before opening up the package.  It’s really light and fluffy.)  Nancy Kirk, one of Flourishes owners, has made a video demonstrating this product.
