Flourishes December Release Preview ~ Day 2

 

AlwaysBloomingGFXIt’s Day Two of our delightful December Releases at Flourishes! Today we have another stunner for you that combines beautiful botanicals with very meaningful sentiments. Introducing…. Always Blooming.  Send some strength to those you care about with this touching set penned by Sam Pickard and embellished with beautiful sentiments courtesy of Dina Kowal. It's a set that's perfect for those times when a friend needs to know that you care. It features five scripted sentiments with heart warming messages as well as a group of beautifully drawn winter roses. Set measures 4" by 6".  Ideas are blooming plentifully in our design team creations with this gorgeous set.

It was fun to color some flowers again!  I used two Copic Collections:  Sweet Pea and Olive Green.  The decorative paper is from the Reflections 6x6 pack by Echo Park, and my base is Flourishes Classic Ivory.  I also added some sparkle with some Prisma Glitter, and a wrinkled ribbon seam binding bow.  That's it from me...
