More New Releases From Flourishes!

Hi all! If you haven't taken a peek at the new releases from Flourishes -- you need to! This one is called Thinking of You by the ever so talented illustrator Marcella Hawley and features not only vintage like floral accents but elegant sayings that can be used in tough times.

Here's a peek at the full set....

And, here is what I did with it!

I used my Nestabilities Labels Two dies to create a frame, background and inner frame that was popped up with foam tape. The center is simply the With Deepest Sympathy saying that has been accented with one of the small flowers in the set. I used Olive and Brick Vivid ink to color my small flower and Versafine Black Onyx for the saying. The paper is My Mind's Eye. I used my ticket corner punch from Stampin' Up on all four corners of my decorative paper mat, strung some burgundy grosgrain ribbon through my frame, added a decorative brad (unknown maker) and added some deep rust self stick pearls as accents! I love the simple elegance of this set. Not a ton of stamping, but who would notice?
Hope you are all having a fabulous day! Be sure to check out the other new creations from the designers of Flourishes.....

See you back here tomorrow for one final peek!

Cut it out! Stop making GORGEOUS cards that make me think I need new stamps. I don't, I don't, I don't and you're a bad influence, but I like you anyway.
