Introducing Flowers and Frames...

Happy Thursday and welcome to day 3 of Flourishes Sneak Peeks!

Today we are showing off the gorgeous Flowers and Frames Set.... so many options with these images!


Here is my idea....



As you can tell I kept the design simple....have you noticed...no coloring!!! The images were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black. Next I embellished with some *piercing* the Spellbinder Floral Ovals Die, a different Button, some Petite Mini Roses and  of course I couldn't resist using the 123 Create Kits again....it's definitely a must have!!!


Please make sure to hop on over to the Flourishes Blog to see all the details and don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team ~

Heather said...

So beautiful!!! Even without coloring. : ) Love how these sentiments and frames fit in the oval dies. Super easy elegance!

Colleen said...

Silke,
WOW even in just plain black this holds it's elegance. Great card

Ravengirl said...

Lovely! I think that the paper you used in the background brings enough color to allow for not coloring the frame.

Stacy aka Twinshappy on SCS said...

Beautiful! Silke your piercing is great and that you didn't color the main image is awesome. Very classy look and feel.

Marguerite Rose said...

What an amazingly soft and pretty card! One of my all-time favourite colour combinations. I love the two different width strips under the elegant ovals. And that sentiment is so true, isn't it? Thank you for sharing your card.

Marisa said...

Such a fabulous sentiment and so true!! Love how you double matted it in white. Gorgeous soft colours too. Fabulous as always :)

Hi Silke,

You always manage for me to do a double take on your cards! When I think I have noted every single detail on one of them and scroll down to see your other wonderful projects, I catch myself time and time again scrolling up to see something that I realized I did not pay the necessary attention to. Your choice not only of dies but either of color or lack of it, always makes me say, now why didn't I though of that! And to top it off your selection of ribbon is always the awesome finishing detail to everyone of your masterpieces! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!

Cariños,
