Introducing Country road


Welcome to day 3 of Flourishes August release. We are showing you the beautiful Country Road set today. I have to say this set has a very calming nature to the images. I felt in a blue and white mood again when stamping so I went with it. :0) The sentiment I tagged with some twine to the edge and created the frame using Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large. Some blue checkered ribbon and button combo to finish it off!Be sure to check out the beautiful creations from the Senior Design Team today:
