Flourishes' May Sneak Peeks, Day Two

So, what did you think of yesterday's set, Wedded Bliss? Fabulous, right? Well, today we have one that you're gonna LOVE. It's called What a Catch and is perfect for the men in your life that like to fish. It will work equally well for Father's Day and birthdays.

This set will go live in the store at 9AM CST today. Be sure to check out the Flourishes blog for all the details. And, at 12 NOON CST a sketch challenge will be posted on the Flourishes blog. You won't want to miss that fun challenge, so be sure to check it out.

If my father was still alive, I could sure send this to him--he loved to fish, so this set has some real sentimental meaning for me. I love all the well thought out details, as I'm sure you will, too.

I'm using Classic Ivory card stock for my image, colored with Copic markers. Then I cut it out with my Petite Oval Nestabilities dies and my Grand Calibur. I'm using manly and nautical papers, some brads, and twill tied in a knot to continue the masculine theme. The sentiment was cut out with a Tags Trio die and tied on with twine.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Flourishes team has to show you with this set.
