The Sneaks are Over!

After a few days of peeks and tons of eye candy courtesy of the Flourishes Design Team, I'm happy to say that all of Flourishes' April sneaks are over and all of the sets we've been showing off are LIVE in the Flourishes Store HERE! Today, we bring you one more hop and this one will have you hopping past the garden gate to see a bevy of beautiful roses!

Garden Gate, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, takes the beauty of a shrub rose and makes it a card maker's delight! The set features one beautiful arched shrub rose branch and a fun-filled,whimsical scene welcoming you beyond the garden's gate. This 4 by 6" set also offers 5 beautifully scripted sentiments.

On to my creation! For starters, this card was made a whole lot easier because I used the brand new 123 Create Kit called Stationery Noted. I love how those kits take the complete guesswork out of trying to match up papers, ribbons and all those little extras! And... here's what I made!

I started with my Silhouette and used the brand new Garden Gate cut file. I cut the image out of Flourishes Classic White and then, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Cut some decorative paper using Spellbinders Labels Thirteen. Color the image with Copics (see list below for the collections that I used), add some paper piercing, some ribbon, enamel dots and... that's all that there is to this card!

Here's a close up showing this sweet sentiment that is a part of this set...
And, here's a close up of those beautiful shrub roses -- Marcella Hawley has such a way with flowers! You can also see I did add some razzle dazzle to the flowers' centers thanks to some glitter glue....

And that, my friends, is it! I love the red shades with that pale blue -- it's kind of calming on one hand with a pop of drama! ;-)
