Timeless Tuesday With A New Flourishes Release!

Welcome to Day 1 of Flourishes’ fabulous sneak peeks! PLUS you'll get an opportunity to WIN our entire new June release just by playing along!  For the remainder of this week the Flourishes' Senior Design Team will be sharing the newest stamp sets with you! 

Since Sneak Peek Day 1 overlaps with the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, we have some amazing projects showcasing our newest beautiful floral stamp set by Marcella Hawley today... 
This stunning new stamp set features a glorious spray of wildflowers along with some wonderfully heartfelt sentiments.  It will be a 'must-have' on your shopping list this week!

For this challenge, create a card or project that moves or opens in a non-traditional manner (FTTC224)!  In other words, create a card that doesn't just open normally.  Maybe it has a third panel like a tri-fold card or it has a greeting tag that pops up when you pull a ribbon!
 

There are lots of fun tutorials you can try out.  Here are just a few examples of some great card tutorials that will fit perfectly for this week's challenge:

My design today is a pretty straight case from a beautiful card made by one of my stamping friends, Jackie Bowman. You can see her gorgeous card here.
My card is an upright Z-fold. Super easy to make and a fun look. The card is held closed by one of the dies from the Tailor-Made Classic Tags.
I added pearls, lace, ribbon and a button for my embellishments.
I kept my image monochromatic but added two layers to the flowers to give them dimension.
Today we have both our Flourishes Finest Design Team AND our Friends of Flourishes Team sharing their "Open Sesame" inspirations with you!  Take a moment and leave some love on all of our designers' blogs.
Come and hop along and visit with all of our super talented designers and join us in our challenge this week for a chance at winning our ENTIRE new June release!!  Yup... that's right... you could win our entire new release just by playing along!

And another way to win: You need to find out who today's Mystery Blogger is!  Hidden among the Design Team is one Designer who has this set to give away.  Comment on that blog and you could win today's beautiful Picking Wildflowers set!
