Flourishes Friday Favorites

Good Morning Flourishes friends! It's time for another Friday Favorites, and today I'm using A Year in Flowers 3, featuring the Chrysanthemum. By the way, I just love the Flourishes idea of a flower for every month of the year!

I stamped out the A Year In Flowers 3 in Versafine Vintage Sepia and the sentiment from Tiny Flowers and Tags in Memento Rich Cocoa. I colored my image in with Olive Greens Collection, Tiger Lily and the Beehive Collection Copic markers. I added some stitching along my patterned paper and matted it with Color Made Easy Rich Browns cardstock. I added a pearl flourish, some Color Made Easy Chocolate Brown ribbon, a Color Made Easy Poppy Button, and some Ivory Jute Twine.

I really had so much fun using this stamp set and letting my imagination run wild. I hope this Friday Favorites encourages you to pull out your favorite Flourishes stamp set, too! Also please stop by and  visit the Flourishes blog today for our special news! Christine is going to take over some of the design team management for Julie so she can help Jan Marie more. You can read all about it here: Flourishes Blog.
