Pretty Flourish-y Birthday for OLS1

Here's another card with a flourish, but this one doesn't look flatulent at all. *wink*

That fabulous big sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #12, one of Papertrey's $5 sets. Love it! The flourish is from Clearly Besotted's With a Flourish. Love it, too! The soft pool ink from Hero Arts looks so pretty under the very solid black sentiment stamped with VersaColor black ink.

The bling matches better in real life, and I like how it sort of anchors the flourish on the left and lets it flow to the right...just as you read.

I'm going to enter this in the One-Layer Simplicity #1 Challenge! If you haven't had a chance to play along yet, click over and check out the details. For those who missed the announcement, the One-Layer Wednesday Challenge has now been replaced with One-Layer Simplicity...a monthly challenge where you can enter cards from the 1st through the 24th of the month.

I'm so excited to see 66 entries already for our first challenge! Can't wait to spend some time catching up on all the entries and commenting on those I haven't gotten to yet. So much beauty over there!!!

Have a wonderful, inky weekend, everyone.
