Still more to see!

Yesterday you saw Wild For Watermelon from the Friends of Flourishes team. Yummy! Now see today's new set!

Hollyhocks Graphic

Today I am sharing a sample from Hollyhocks. Such a beautiful old fashioned flower! DPK_SneakPeek_Hollyhocks_wm

My hollyhocks image is stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic markers. I also stamped the “HOLLYHOCKS” at the bottom under the image. The outer edges of the panel is sponged with Wheat ink from Versa Magic. The solid cardstock is from Prism and the floral is a scrap that I think is Crate Paper. I hope I have more of because I just love it! Anyway, the sentiment and mat were but with Spellbinders dies Long Classic Rectangles and Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles. I used two leaf stick pins from Maya Road in the center of the bow and capped each with a tiny bead that I glued on. I didn’t want anyone getting stuck with one of those! The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, two layers, with some tiny pearls.

Someone today is the Mystery Blogger!
