Starting TODAY, the next time you go shopping in the Flourishes online boutique and spend $100 on a single purchase (not including taxes or shipping), you will receive this beautiful stamp set called Happy Thoughts!

You won't want to miss all the creativity coming your way .... just in time for some weekend craft ideas!  

I have a card to share with you using this awesome new set!

I really loved the sentiments in this set that the talented Dina designed... I think they are super usable for a card that can be sent anytime! What brightens a friend's day more than an unexpected hand made card in the mailbox? And of course, the image is equally as lovely and could be colored in a variety of colors! I think you could really get a lot of use from this image in so many different ways.

Here are the Copics I used to color up my flowers. I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink as I always do when using Copics.

Here's a close up... I used foam tape in between the layers to add a little dimension. Of course I snuck a bow in the mix! Just a little black seam binding floppy bow!

Here's a quick peek at the inside of the card. Finished card size is an A2.
