Flourishes Sneak Peeks begin!

Hi all and welcome to the very first day of Flourishes Sneak Peeks for JUNE! It's exciting because the sets being revealed this week aren't just unique for June -- they are part of an entire collection of stamp sets that will be released over the next year! It's called the Blossom Collection and each set released under this name will be designed to coordinate with the other pieces for all types of occasions! Use one set on it's own or slowly add to the collection -- that's the beauty of it! Today's set is the first part of this collection and features beautiful blooms perfect for summer!

 
Part of The Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of summer blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in a trio of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence. Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Letters in Blossom SS198. If you like what you see, this set is available for pre-order now, just click HERE! The design team has been busy creating beautiful things with this stunning set!
 
My card today also uses the CTD196 challenge colors
 
swatch 196
 
I used one of the corner images, coloring it with Copic markers on Flourishes Classic White card stock.   I used Classic Circles large and Picot Edge Circle dies from Spellbinders to cut out my image and mat.  The paper is from the  MME 6x6 pad On The Bright Side.    I zig zag stitched on the yellow panel and added a simple ribbon on bow with a coordinating button.  I also added some dimension with Liquid Pearls in the center of the white flower.
