Vellum Wedded Bliss



Welcome to the beautiful NEW Release Sneak Peeks for May at Flourishes!  I'm delighted to show you this beautiful silhouette set for all those special love occasions in your life!


I have something pretty and soft for you today with this pretty and elegant new set... I've stamped the image of the young man on one knee proposing to his lady with River Rock ink onto Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Designer Paper  I really love this paper pack...and have used a lot of it already!  Then I trimmed it out with the Lacey Oval Nestabilities, and then added an oval of Vellum overtop....sponging it with Baja Ink and sewing on the main image.   It really gives it some romantic softness.  


I've accented with more sewing, vellum, beautiful blue silk ribbon and some funky sewn brads I've had in my collection for a long time.  

Here's one last picture where you can see the sentiment and accents..I've used my Nested Lacey Pennants die to trim out the sentiment pennant flag.  


Romantic and dreamy I think :)  It's a beautiful set!

I love this.. Every thing about it is beautiful. Your stitching is perfect. Stitching in a circle like that is tough. Great card.
