Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
Today's card is made using the new Apple of My Eye set by Flourishes. I had such a good time colouring in these apples and seeing them come to life - I think I was a little crazy deciding to cut it all out, but I did love the finished effect!!! There is a quote from the bible which is also in a favourite book of mine that goes "Comfort me with apples: for I am sick with love"..... I wonder who knows which book it comes from! ;-)
I started with a base of aqua bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla, punched on the bottom with the Deco Fan border punch, and the added a piece of Thrift Shop DP. Towards the bottom I added some ivory crochet ribbon and topped with some ivory satin ribbon. Above this I added a piece of VV that had been cut with Label 8 Nestabilities and stamped the sentiment from Flourishes' Apple of My Eye set. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (R02, R22, R24, R29, G20, G21, G24, G28), then very carefully cut it all out and popped it up on foam tape to the side of the sentiment. To finish I added an ivory bow and a few Kaisercraft Blush pearls under the sentiment.
