Let the Flourishes Sneak Peeks Begin!

What's more luscious in the summer than fresh fruit! Well Flourishes has some ripe for the picking and you won't even have to worry about calories with these sweet picks! As the DT unveils the July release with a handful of sneak peeks let's begin with......

Berry Sweet Graphic

This beautiful set artfully drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley features not only raspberries and blueberries but a total of three focal stamps, two accent pieces and a whopping nine words and sentiments! When I first saw this set, I thought it had a kind of vintage feel to it with sweet, old fashioned images! So, that's the look I went for with my card...

Aside from fun gingham ribbon and a sweet crochet lace trim, I added some distressed polka dots with the help of an embossing folder. My berries were just stamped on Flourishes Classic White and colored with Copic markers. I used a mix of the Green Grass, Dahlia and Sweet Pea collections grouped by Flourishes and then highlighted with a B000 marker just around the edges of the berries and the leaves. Mat it up and add some paper piercing and... done!

Do you want to win this set? If so, please leave a comment here on today's post! A winner will be randomly drawn and will be announced in a post on Saturday called Flourishes' Winner Circle!

Now it's time to see the fresh picked creations from Flourishes' talented Design Team!
