Swing into Swing-Sweet Violets!

I just love this time of the month.  It is the time when Flourishes release it’s newest sets.  This month we have

I just love this new delicate stamp set, illustrated by our resident artist Marcella Hawley.

I have lots of wonderful sweet violets growing wild in our yard.  I don’t consider them intruders and treasure the beautiful little plants.  The blooms have a nice array of white, pink and lavender.  So it is no doubt that this one is going to be one of those romantic images I just love.

Here is my card to share with you today as my part of the sneaks peeks.


I used the largest image in the stamp stet for this card.  The designer paper is from the Memory Box, Poppyfinch.  The lavish silk ribbon is one the newest additions to the Flourishes webstore.  The center on the bow is a brooch looking button I got at JoAnn’s.  The lacey edge was done with the MS Punch and accented with Kaiser flat back pearls also in the FLLC store.

Here is a look at the set which will be available at our Release Party on the SCS forum Friday night at 9:00 EST.sweet-violetsfinal-jmc-copy1
