Two Fanciful Flourish Cards

I saw this beautiful CAS card made with the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die and I just had to get the die.  As soon as I got the die I CASEd the card but I used some red along with the black and white.  The large solid flower is from a retired SU! set called Fabulous Flowers.  I inked the stamp in Riding Hood Red, stamped off and then added some Cherry Cobbler ink with a sponge dauber.

Stamped flowers and a sentiment finished off the inside of the card and the envelope.

When I die cut the flourish it came out of the die so easily,  it left a perfect negative shape stencil behind.  I decided to make another card by spritzing a coloured mist through the stencil.  I taped the stencil lightly to a piece of Whisper White CS and spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer 'Patina' mist.  Baja Breeze was a great match to the mist colour so I used that together with Rich Razzleberry and Island Indigo as my colour combo.  I've added a sentiment, a stamped butterfly and some punched flowers with jewel centres.  I've glued the butterfly just at the body and I've popped the wings up.

Here's the inside and the envelope.  I die cut a Baja Breeze large flourish and glued part of it to a white panel inside the card.  On a recent trip to the Glitter Pot I came across a smaller version of the die - a Mini Fanciful Flourish - so of course that had to join my die collection!  The mini flourish was perfect to pop on the envelope flap.
