Shabby Flowers... and Blog Candy!

Hello!  It's the second day of sneak peeks for Shady Tree Studio's December release (December 16th) to be exact!  I have a project I thought I'd share with you that I hope inspires.

Shabby Flowers

I used the same Bouquets and Butterflies (6"x8") set for today's card.  There are SO many images and sentiments with this set.  I stamped the flower trio with Black Soot Distress ink and embossed.  The image was colored with Copic markers.  I used a bit of Sepia Brown Copic to add highlights to the flowers and leaves to mimic the Girls' Paperie patterned paper.  I added a carnival ticket behind the main image with my "with love" sentiment (it's my favorite of the set... the script is just amazing and natural to me).

I hope you'll check out the rest of the designer's projects today! (I forgot to do that for yesterday's post... oops!).

Oh!!!  And if you made it this far, I'd like to offer some blog candy.  Nancy sent me an extra set to share with some lucky winner.  I've decided to add a few odds and ends to sweeten the deal.  There's some Flower Soft, carnival tickets, ribbon, Zva Creative crystals joining the darling set from Shady Tree Studio!
I'll select from one of my followers on Sunday of this week.  If you are already a follower, just leave me a note and let me know.
Thanks a bunch!
