Flourishes Release Day 2



Welcome to day 2 of Flourishes New Release week.  The set we are showing today
is called Paperwhites.  These are such pretty flowers and I just happened to see today that
they are out in stores for the holiday season now.  I did some research (thanks Leslie)
to find out what would be the best way to color these flowers.
 Paperwhites1 
I chose to  watercolor this image with markers.  I tried
to keep the florals white but highlighted with just a little bit of yellow and then shadowed
with blues. I used this pretty paper from Memory Box Tinsel that is available at Flourishes.
Flourishes Cotton linen ribbon and a sentiment from this set and the card was complete.  

Want to win this set or maybe even the whole release? There are 3 ways to do this.
1. Create a card for the pre-release challenge in shades of blue and link it up to the
