My Dahlias

Welcome to another Friday where we show off the July New Releases at Flourishes!  Many of us today will be showing off our favourite set or card from the releases to you today.  

When Marcy was working on this set she asked if I had some pictures of my dahlias at home (I just got some for Mother's Day that I planted out front), so I quickly ran outside, snapped a few photos and sent them to her....not too long after that, this stunning set Dahlias was born. I said that forever more I'd be referring to them as "my dahlias" :)  So...the ones you see here are almost the exact color that mine are.  


I stamped the flower spray onto Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut the blooms out with our Flourishes Classic Keyhole Die, then coloured them up with Copic Markers.  The designer papers are Carta Bella and the cardstock is Color Made Easy Candy Pink.  


For accents I added some gorgeous lace from the store, a seam binding bow, a Tailor Made Classic Tag, and some beautiful Trinket Pins.  Such a beautiful set, and so much fun to colour!  

Today you'll have to drop by the rest of the team to see what they've cooked up with their favourites from this months sets, I know they'll be gorgeous!  And just to remind you these sets are available for a 10% discount as a New Release bundle and that deal ends TODAY!  

You'll also want to visit the Flourishes Blog today because we have a new Designer Focus on the lovely Heather Jensen!  It's a chance for you to CASE Heather and win a Flourishes Goodie Bag!

Wasn't that the coolest thing when the artist inspired by the beauty in your garden? ;-) Your card is just as stunning as the photos you shared way back when this set wasn't even a pencil mark on a piece of paper!
