Flourishes New Release Day Three

Hi everyone, and welcome to the final day of Flourishes’ July Release Week! And, guess what? If you like what you’ve seen on our designers’ blogs this week, I’m happy to report that all  of Flourishes’ new sets for July are in the Flourishes store!! Just click HERE to see for yourself! Don’t forget our New Release Bundle – 10% off if you buy all four sets! Are you ready to see our last set being revealed today? Today’s set is all about grabbing life by the handlebars!

This darling set called Bike Ride  illustrated by Lauren Pope offers a classic bicycle built for a lazy ride down a country road.  Customize your creation with five different items to stuff inside the bike’s charming basket – everything from a delicious bagette fresh from the farmer’s market to your favorite furry friend! This set comes with 5 whimsical all-occasion sentiments as well. Set measures 4 by 6″. The Design Team has done some downright fun things with this set!




This new Bike Ride set is my absolute favorite this month since our family has really embraced riding bikes a lot more this Spring and Summer.  We have some GREAT bike trails in our area... four actually within 30 minutes of our home, and we've taken advantage of all of them so far this year.  So "Grab Life by the Handlebars" could be our motto!  LOL  I colored my bike with Copics primarily from the collections listed below on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, and embellished my design with a gingham bow, button and papers from My Mind's Eye.





Would you like to win  this set? All you need to do is leave some love in the form of a comment on the blogs below! Why? You need to try to figure out…..

I have to say Tammy, I love the way you pair colors together. They always look so rich and vibrant and this card is no exception! Love the way too you cropped the bike so it looks like it's riding into frame -- fun!

Pattie J. said...

Now that's a clever idea, to show only half a bike, keeps you guessing and wanting to look inside for perhaps and surprise....thanks for sharing....hugs
