A Year of Flowers... the final day!

You can almost smell fall in the air when you look at these beauties drawn by Marcella Hawley! This set... our final sneak peek of the week for Flourishes features four beautiful flowers and the months they represent! Marcella even created a customizable and downloadable calendar that you can deck out with these florals! The calendar was created just for these sets so it is a perfect match with fonts and colors! The download will be available tonight on the Flourishes store-$2 on its own or FREE with the purchase of all three sets!

I printed it off for my post today to show you just how beautiful these flowers are and how these blossoms paired with the calendar would make the most perfect gifts! Above is a peek of the fall set I made, and I made it to fit in a small picture easel. It's perfect for your desk top!

September's month is Aster and I found some fun My Mind's Eye and SU paper to pair up with my flower! I used the Violet, Daffodil and Fields Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes to color my image and outlined with the palest yellow in the Daffodil group and then blended with a blender pen. The tag was done with Spellbinder's Fancy Tags.
October is actually my favorite month of the set! I love those rich shades of rust! To color up my mums, I used the Falling Leaves and Fields Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. The paper is 7 Gypsies.

Here's a closer look at the flower. I just love Marcy's take on a mum!
November is Cyclamen with it's beautiful red or even pink tones! I colored up my flower with the Poppy and Fields Copic Collections. The paper is Making Memories - Sabrina collection.

Here's a closer look at this unusual and beautiful flower!
And last, but not least is the beautiful buds found in the amaryllis.. gasp! I just think this illustration is to die for! This flower is just so elegant looking! I used the Dahlia and Fields Copic Collections to color it up. The paper is K & Company.

And that, my friends is it! All you need is this download, some pretty decorative paper, an oval die cut shape and a fun tag. Then, you can stamp and just enjoy coloring up these beauties!
Moving on....the anticipation is already building too for tonight's POWER HOUR RELEASE PARTY! It starts at 9 PM CST with fun, games and giveaways! We'll host it in the Flourishes Forum over on Splitcoast HERE! As soon as the party wraps up, all of our sets for December will be in the Flourishes Store for your shopping pleasure!
