Flourishes Friday - Beauty Within

We're back to another Friday folks!  I have a weekend ahead with just me and my kids as my husband will be taking some students to a huge Youth Conference called appropriately... YC.  Big bands, big speakers, very loud - which is why he is going and not me!  :)  On Saturday I have both boys with ball hockey games at the same time in two rinks in the same arena...I'll be going back and forth between one side and the other!  At least it's not different arenas!

Today on the Flourishes Blog Cindy is focussing on some of our new and beautiful Copic Collections in the store, you'll definitely want to check it out.  One new Collection that I especially wanted right away was the Creamy Collection.  Being able to give a design that creamy value is really nice.  I pulled out a set that needed some ink again ....Beauty Within.  It has such a gorgeous stained glass effect, and I thought creamy roses against the deep turquoisey blue would look nice.  




The sketch is this months SFYTT... and I've used some pretty papers from Memory Box - Brioche.





You can also see that I added a little Ribbon Rose accent with Seam Binding ribbon.  It's really easy to make and I did a tutorial on it SEE HERE.  In fact it is consistently the most looked at post on my blog  :)   So hopefully it's something that you'll enjoy! 

Be sure to check out the beauties at the rest of the Flourishes Design Team today..

Very nice! Love your little ribbon rose, too. The creamy roses are so beautiful and beautifully colored. This collection will be a must-have for me, as well.

Vibrant Christine! This set is awesome with the sketch you used, very cool. The soft colored roses against the blue is so pretty.

This is beautiful Christine. I love this set. I have not used it in some time. Great coloring. Enjoy your time with the kids. I think I would opt to stay home too. I must be getting old. :)
