Release Week Celebration! Yum Cake!



Yippee! Release week is finally here! I'm so excited to show you the three wonderful new sets by Flourishes this week, I'll be showing you something with a new set everyday! This months' releases are all designed around the theme Celebrating Home and will be available Friday night at our first ever release party at the Flourishes SCS Forum .... and also remember our contest to win all three fabulous sets! See the Flourishes Blog for more details:


Today it's all about CELEBRATION, with Yum Cake!






This adorable set called Birthday Celebrations is designed by a new illustrator for Flourishes Lauren Pope...it's full of whimsy and yet still in a Flourishes style! I actually started this card with the paper....this yummy Basic Grey Two Scoops, and also some Urban Prairie. I love the colors and since this is for my niece who LOVES pink....it is very girly! I stamped this great cake in Stazon and watercolored it with pinks and greens. To mirror the gingham in the paper pattern, I wove some ribbon as accent and added pretty felt flowers. The little cupcake has white gel pen sprinkles and a pink cherry brad on top!



CUTE and YUMMY!

Here's a second one I added today with the Sketch Challenge:

Celebrate Cake!


On this card I used Copics to color the cake and cupcakes and then added touches of chunky glitter on Crystal Effects...I love the adorable sparkle it gives. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Urban Prairie...I love the pattern in these sheets with the depth of the black.

Check out all the other samples from the Flourishes girls at the Flourishes Blog....or these other rainbow of fabulous designers blogs...
