Sneak Peaks Day 2-Motherly Love

Hi Friends,l

  Welcome to day two of Flourishes sneak peaks for April.  The month of May is just around the corner and  so is the celebration of Mother’s Day. Flourishes is proud to release a new sentiment set just perfect for the occasion, Motherly Love.This lovely sentiments set, Motherly Love, has been penned by Marcella Hawley and is great paired with any of Flourishes florals or alone, as I’m using it today.

I  used one of the sentiments from this new set as my focal point.  The new set, the Prima Botanical pad, and the Webester Pages cameo embelishment were my inspiration.  The card is multi layered papers cut with Spellbinders dies.

This is what I used for this card:

Paper:  Flourishes Classic Ivory, SU Old Olive, Webster Pages (Botanical), and Pinkparislee (Sweetness)

Inks:  Memento Bamboo Leaves, Sky Blue, and London Fog (to tone down the blue ink)

Spellbinder dies:  Deckled Ovals, Classic ovals, Petite Scalloped Ovals, Labels Twenty, and Fleur De Lis Accents

Embelishments:  Webster Pages Silhouettes and May Arts crinkle ribbon

Other:  Scor Tape and Foam tape

The card base is 5 1/2″ x  7″.
