Sneak Peek - A Year of Flowers

Well, have we got something special for you this week. Flourishes is unveiling it's December releases, and I really think Marcella has outdone herself  illustrating this time, and we think you'll agree. The sets this week are so beautiful and will be such a staple for any stampers' collection. I think they will be ones you will pick up over and over again.   Today I have a card to show you, and then a sneak peek of something I can't completely show you till Friday. :)

There's just something so beautiful about Pansies. They are such a delicate flower, and yet pretty hardy actually. I like that in a flower! I've colored these beauties with Prismacolor Pencils to get that delicate transition from blue to purple.


Here is a detail shot of these pretty flowers.  I love how Marcy captured how delicate the blooms are.  The papers are Jenni Bowlin Varsity Mini Papers, you can just see the double bow in the narrow silk ribbon and the Fancy Labels die with the pearls for the sentiment.  I wanted to keep the embellishments delicate and romantic. 


And here is a sneak peek of a Sneak Peek!  :)  This is just a portion of a special project.  I'll show you a little today, a little tomorrow...and the whole project completely on Friday. 



Now how would you like to win this gorgeous set today?  Stop by the Flourishes Newsletter for your chance to enter.   And don't forget about the Floral Finesse Color Inspiration Challenge where you could win the whole release this month!
