Picking Wildflowers


 Hi all and welcome to day 1 of Flourishes' fabulous sneak peeks and PLUS you'll get an opportunity to WIN our entire new June release just by playing along! For the remainder of this week we will be sharing our newest stamp sets with you! Aren't you excited?! I sure am! Since Sneak Peek Day 1 overlaps with the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, we have some amazing projects showcasing our newest beautiful floral 
stamp set by Marcella Hawley called Picking Wildflowers.


I used the center step card for my post today.  There are several you tube videos for this card shape, just type it into the bar at the top and they will pop up.  I also Googled butterflies and found one that looked very similar to this one.  It kind of looks like a moth to me but it's antennae gave it away and led me to believe it is a butterfly and not a moth.

Quiet and filled with elements that impress, I love your combination of gentle coloring of the flowers, the stitchery around the border, and the touch of twine bow with the seam binding type ribbon. What a charming card!!! ♥
