It’s a Summer Release

It’s the second Wednesday of the month and that means Flourishes is releasing new sets!  And this month is totally devoted to the last vestige of summer.


 My card for this first day of release is a simple one.  Fresh and clean just as the days are just after a summer rain.  The image of the bowl of lemons is from Summer on the Patio.  This is a wonderfully versatile set, with duplicates of most images in two sizes.  It is full of refreshing images.  Yes, like these bowls of lemons, but there is more, much, much more, pitchers of lemonade, glasses of all sizes, tables, and chairs all for patio entertaining.






I used a simple statement on the card, using Flourished Words to say “Thank You Friend”.

The Card is made on white card stock, a linen cardstock in blue and yellow.  A punched edge on the blue adds a crisp look.  A yellow and blue check ribbon adds another crisp touch.  The image was colored with my Copics and then blended with Prisma color pencils.  Oh how I love this card and the freshness of it! 

I hope you enjoy it as well.

So want to see the sets, I’ve given you a small glimpse below, we are releasing???  Sure you do, so go straight over to the store….They are up and it’s early.
