Flourishes Friday Focus–Signs Of Spring


Hi there, Flourishes fans! Welcome to Friday Focus. Today we’re revisiting Signs Of Spring (which is 10% off through Sunday, April 1--get all the details at the Flourishes Blog). Appropriate for where I am, that’s for sure, although most of my daffodils are about gone. Sad, ‘cause they’re so bright and cheerful.

I stamped my lovely daffodil on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with these Copic Collections:

Evergreen Collection:


Sunflower Collection:

Sunflower Collection

Gerbera Daisy Collection:

Then I made my card base using
Classic Ivory card stock, did some stitching, tied some matching ribbon around in a bow, and stamped that awesome sentiment by Monet. I popped the daffodil up on foam, added some Dew Drops in the upper right corner, and stamped the little sentiment from the set on a Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set die cut. 

And that’s it! Now, be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you today...
