Sneak Peek Day 2: Easter Wishes!

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes Sneaks for February! I hope you enjoyed yesterday's sneak of some gorgeous florals -- Old Fashioned Florals! It might be the day of LOVE (Happy Valentine's Day!!) but today's sneak is all about sending off sweet Easter Wishes. This new set features classic imagery and religious sentiments perfect for the season!

Introducing...

EasterWishesGraphic
Three lovely vignettes designed to usher in beautiful well wishes for a blessed Easter. This set, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, offers a breath of spring with three main images and six beautifully scripted sentiments.

On to my creation! When I saw this set, I just fell in love with that beautiful and almost vintage inspired egg. What's fun is -- there are a handful of sentiments designed to fit in the little tag. Too fun! 
I started with some fun decorative paper and then built my card and colors around it. Another fun thing? The background to my oval shape is actually a doily that I cut apart and taped to match the curves of my oval die mat. For my main image, I started by using my Silhouette Cameo with the new Easter Wishes cut file (available in both Silhouette and SVG formats!) I grabbed my Tuxedo Black ink and Copics and went to town coloring (see supply list below for the colors that I used). Add some fun ribbon, a stitched edge and decorative border punch and... ta da! Done!

You can see that on the flowers, I did add a little razzle dazzle with the help of some glitter glue. See?

 
And that, my friends, is it! If you like what you see, you can pre-order this set now HERE or.... do you want to try to win this set? All you need to do is try to figure out.....

Oh! I *love* Flourishes stamps, but this set has to be my favorite (at least for now... LOL!) !! Chicks and lambs and Scripture verses, and this pretty egg that reminds me of an old Easter greeting card. HAPPY SIGH! Your card is so pretty and I'll bet it's even more stunning in real life when you can see the sparkle. Marvelous!
