Flower Spray Frames

I'm back with another card made with April's New Release sets from Flourishes!  The Spring Blossoms Set completes our Blossoms Collection seasons and it's so pretty!  One thing I love about how Marcella designed the sets is that she always incorporates some elements that can be used as framing or accent pieces, corner elements etc.  I chose to take these pretty magnolia blooms and frame out the sentiment.  

I began by cutting out a Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die from Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I stamped two of the magnolia blossoms in the die and stamped two extras two be able to trim out.  I coloured these up with Copics, trimmed out my extras and then popped the largest bloom up in the center of each side.  

The piercing in each of our Perfectly pierced dies adds such an elegant detail!  I added some facted rhinestone accents, crochet lace, creamy seam binding and our Color Made Easy Candy Pink card stock.  

I hope you enjoyed stopping by today!  I'll be back tomorrow.  Hope to see you then.
