Happiness Wildflowers


How about some more pretties with this month's Flourishes Release?  I had a lot of fun colouring up this lovely wildflower bouquet from the new Picking Wildflowers set in some vibrant pinks and greens for a wedding card.  The design is pretty simple outside of the fact that I did some cutting out-of-the-box style on the butterfly on the right and the poppy pod on the left, after stamping in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Flourishes Classic White.  I curved the two right edges of the design and did some outlining with my Copic Multi-liner pen, and then popped up the top left butterfly.  The papers are Carta Bella True Friends.  


Then I added the sentiment on one of the smaller dies from our Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die set, accented with a little stamping in Memento Lilac Posies ink.  A few last accents with Teresa Collins  Enamel Dots, some pretty lime braided trim and Color Made Easy Seambinding in Pink Aster.  

It's really such a beautiful bouquet isn't it?  So perfect to make a beautiful statement on a card and so pretty for a summer wedding!  Don't forget that the June Releases are available in a bundle at 10% off this week only!  They are four gorgeous sets!  And you'll be seeing more of them from me in the days ahead :)
