Picking Wildflowers today

Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes' fabulous sneak peeks and PLUS you'll get an opportunity to WIN our entire new June release just by playing along! For the remainder of this week we will be sharing our newest stamp sets with you! Aren't you excited?! I sure am! Since Sneak Peek Day 1 overlaps with the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, we have some amazing projects showcasing our newest beautiful floral stamp set by Marcella Hawley today...
PickingWildflowersGraphic
This stunning new stamp set features a glorious spray of wildflowers along with some wonderfully heartfelt sentiments. It will be a 'must-have' on your shopping list this week! For this challenge, create a card or project that moves or opens in a non-traditional manner (FTTC224)! In other words, create a card that doesn't just open normally. Maybe it has a third panel like a tri-fold card or it has a greeting tag that pops up when you pull a ribbon! There are lots of fun tutorials you can try out. Here are just a few examples of some great card tutorials that will fit perfectly for this week's challenge:
For my card I went with the criss cross pocket card. Recently made a few of these and they are so fun I forget at times how fun. The front I just added a little scalloped edge using our Classic White cardstock and stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black ink. This textured paper is from our Emerald Coast Color Made Easy collection.  
This is the card inside when you pull it out. I stamped the Picking Wildflowers onto the Classic White Cardstock using Memento tuxedo black ink.

Colored with copic collections:




Once colored layered onto some more of our Emerald Coast Color Made Easy collection, yet punched a circle out and adhered in between the layers for the tab. Easy Peasy all around!

We have both our Flourishes Finest Design Team AND our Friends of Flourishes Team sharing their "Open Sesame" inspirations with you! Take a moment and leave some love on all of our designers' blogs.
Come and hop along and visit with all of our super talented designers and join us in our challenge this week for a chance at winning our ENTIRE new June release!! Yup... that's right... you could win our entire new release just by playing along.

Amazing! At first I thought this was like a kimono type card until I read through your introduction! Great idea of the diamond shaped doors exposing the beautiful main focal image on its own panel! And what beautiful coloring, too!!!
