Always Blooming at Flourishes

It’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….    
AlwaysBloomingGFX

 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".
I adore the lines and petals on these flowers. This is Always Blooming that are stamped onto Classic White card stock using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic Collections:




Once colored I simply scored around the edges added a base of designer paper from the scrap bin. Stamped my sentiment using Memento Tuxedo black ink added a few natural white pearls. Layered on more Classic White card stock and voila! I love how this turned out so crisp and clean!  ;-)
Ideas are blooming plentifully in our design team creations with this gorgeous set. And, while you’re hopping and looking at their creations, don’t forget to try to figure out….
