Snow Wonderful!



Welcome to Flourishes Sneak Peeks for December!  We have some beautiful things to show you over the next 3 days.  Today's set is just my style.  I love it's cozy richness, the beautiful illustration by Marcella Hawley, and the versatility of the set.  And you'll love another offering to add to the Custom Made Classic Keyhole Die we released last month!


I {{{heart}}} this card!  I think it's the partly the color scheme, it evokes the cozy feel that I was going for.  Aren't those little birds amazing?  Sigh!


I've colored up these beauties with Copics, this is what I used on the spruce branches...

And then E43, E44, E47 and E50, and E53 on the birds, and some BG53, and BG0000 on the sky.  

I've used a couple of Spellbinders Dies including Decorative Frames for the pretty corners above the Classic Keyhole Die and Classic Bracket Edgeabilities.  The beautiful papers are My Mind's Eye Breeze, and the embellishments are Prima Crystals - Harvest.  


Amazing - right?  Love it!

WOW! Absolutely STUNNING, Christine!!!! Great colour combo and it is BRILLIANT how you stamped the sentiment on vellum then layered it over the main image. LOVE this new set and how it goes with the tailor-made die since I already own it...

Happy Holiday Hugs!

Oh Christine that's so pretty! Love the colour combination you've used and the gorgeous details. I was just out your way. Had a family friend in the FootHills Hospital so I was in Alberta from Nov 8 - Dec 5th. Sadly I missed a Flourishes release so I'm catching up now!
