There are always flowers...

First, I want to say thank you for all the sweet comments that everyone has left on my blog the last couple days.  I am glad you have enjoyed the new release.  After a few days of peeks and tons of eye candy courtesy of the Flourishes Design Team, we're happy to share that the April sneaks are over and all of the sets we've been showing off are LIVE in the Flourishes Store HERE! Today, we bring you one more hop and this one will have you hopping past the garden gate to see a bevy of beautiful roses!


I love the beautiful roses in this set.  I decided to stamp and cut the flowers out and place them along the side of the sentiment.  This is a more CAS design compared to what I normally do.  I really liked the yellow and turquoise papers together with the roses, don't you?


SUPPLIES USED:
