Fearfully and Wonderfully made

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes' fabulous sneak peeks! Today's stamp set is one that is close to our hearts in more ways than one. For starters, it's the last stamp set penned by Becky Fleck for Flourishes. And because of that, we decided to make it a special set that will help a cause close to Becky's heart. Take a peek at....
Bees&BloomsGraphic
This stippled beauty called Bees and Blooms features apple blossoms and bees buzzing in such an artistic way. And, Becky created a SVG and Silhouette cut file to be used with this set. It's a unique look that is begging to be water-colored, colored up with Copics or just stamped on its own! Now, the special part of this set. Becky is donating 100% of her artist fees to benefit the Relay for Life. Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. And, Becky's team takes to the track in my own home town of Billings, Montana to help make a difference. Here's more to Becky story HERE!   Because Flourishes supports Becky in her mission, 10% of all sales of Bees and Blooms will be funneled right into Becky's team fundraiser to raise money toward cancer research. Every single one of us has someone that we know that has been affected by this horrible disease. So, let's join forces to help stamp out cancer!

Now for my creation today. I stamped the large flower from Bees N Blossoms onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. I die cut using Spellbinders classic circles and extended the flowers around the edge of the die. Layered onto our Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die.
Colored using copic collections:



Rather on the pink side with this one I would say. My base is using Color Made Easy Candy Pink collection. Some designer paper from My Minds Eye pack for the base panel.

Once my dies were cut out I placed some white crochet ribbon in between the shapes then added my Color Made Easy Candy Pink Festive Fuschia ribbon and tied a bow. A few flourishes pearls and voila.

Well, just as we have done in past release weeks, we offer our little guessing game of…. Mystery Blogger Graphic
