Father's Day Layout and Card Set

Good day crafters,
Here is a layout I did for the Pink Elephant challenge. I also completed a coordinating card. 

View of both projects
I used Fall Breeze Glimmer Mist to shimmer up the frame, Flowers and the flourishes. Please see bottom of post for Flower Tutorial link. I created the frame and the flourish for my digital cutter. I want to start sharing some of these files with everyone, but I am still really green in this area. I will update this post with a link to the free flourish file this afternoon hopefully!

View of the layout.
The flourishes on the border is the free cut file at the bottom of this post.
Closeup shot of the flourishes and flowers. FREE flourish file at bottom of post.
Here is a closeup of the card. This is the FREE frame cut file I will be giving to my newsletter subscribers. So be sure to sign up :-)
Different angle to show the raised frame. I will be giving this Digi Stamp Sentiment and the one on the layout to my newsletter subscribers as well.
The frame on the right is the one misted. The other is just the plain cardstock. I am trying to show how very pretty the glimmer mist makes it. It is just hard to photograph.
Here is a close up of the flowers I made. You can make these using a flower on the Forever Young Cartridge. Or you can use punches or a cut file. Whichever you have. I did color the brad with my Copic marker. It was originally a gold brad. Yeah Copics!
I have a quick tutorial on making these flowers on my website.

Free file no longer available. Please visit PCW for all our reasonably priced cutting files and digital printable stamps.
