Hello everyone! 
I am so thrilled to share the exciting news! I am now a member of Flourishes Design Team!! I am very blessed and glad that they are not tired of me yet, lol. Anyway, this is my first post as a FLLC DT and hope you will continue to come back here from time to time :)


Flourishes's April Release Week starts this coming Tuesday! Here is the Release Challenge you can play along. 



"Ahhhh..... summer will be here before we know it and... that means longer days, hotter nights, sitting under the stars and soaking up the nice weather. We know the grass is just starting to green up and spring flowers haven't even really begun to see their full glory -- but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate those warmer days ahead! We're getting in the spirit of outdoor fun now and if you play along with us, you could win Flourishes' entire April release! All you need to do is play in the..."

Here is my Summer card :)



As you see, I didn't use any of the colors from the photo but I was inspired by the layout like the drink was focused with blur background :) I was also inspired the natural elements for the designer paper.




I used Sunflowers set and the sunflower was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Classic White cardstock. It was colored with Copic markers and then I masked the image to create the sky background. I sponged the sky with Memento Summer Sky using the blending tool and cloud template that I made my own with scrap.

The rest of supplies:  white cotton lace, rhinestones, CME paper -Rich Browns, Pistachio, designer paper, decorative edge punch
