Naturally Merry

Welcome to day 4 of Flourishes October release. I really do like sneak peeks because you get to see all the different creativity that the design team has with the same set. Each person has a style their own and then of course you think "oh why didn't I think of that". ha ha
 Okay on with the new set called, Naturally Merry. Beautiful set oh my goodness, this large image of the pinecone made me squeel! My creation is pretty classic with white space and simplicity, my style as most of you know that visit my blog. I stamped out the pinecone onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.
I colored the pinecone using copic collections:




Once colored I fussy cut around the cone. We have saved you all the work of fussy cutting with the new Silhouette cut files and SVG Files! Yea!  After I had mine cut out I popped a few dimensionals to the back. Layered my sentiment using Spellbinders classic rectangles and labels eight for the frames. Added a few red rhinestones and some red wrinkled ribbon to the pinecone. I also have some fairy dust added however didn't come out in the picture very well. Be sure to check out the creations from the design team today:
