Flourishes January Release Day Two

FLLC011013 inside cropped
Hi everyone, and welcome to day two of Flourishes’ January Sneak Peeks featuring three of our newest sets! Today’s sneak is all about love and a cute little poem we all seemed to learn when we were kids! Only now, it’s paired with a few beautiful botanicals that are just screaming to be colored up! Are you ready?
RosesAreRedGraphic
Roses are Red by Marcella Hawley puts a new spin on that old, sweet poem! Roses are Red, Violets are Blue — you finish the phrase with these mix and match sentiments! This set offers a bunch of roses and violets and a single flower bunch that is perfect to send to your sweetie. Use this set for Valentine’s Day or any time you want to serve up some love in the form of a card!

I made my card for this week using the new Roses are Red set, and the Sketchbook Saturday challenge #87 for the layout.  The papers I used are some old Basic Grey.  The floral image was stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics from the Candy Pink, Pistachio, True Purple and Daffodil collections.  I embellished with some Baby Pink seam binding, a crystal trinket stick pin and a button tied off with some ivory jute.  The little row of hearts at the bottom was made using my Silhouette machine and this cut file.

Inside I added the image again, along with the rest of the poem.
