Flourishes Design Team Friday Challenge Hop

Hello and welcome to my studio.

For today's blog hop, Tricia Traxler has challenged the team to use:

Patterned Paper

I have the great pleasure of using my favorite stamp set so far...
Bushel of Thanks

Illustrating stamp sets is such a joy for me!
All those years of drawing homework have really paid off, along with my love of Mary Engelbreit.

Although the, "bit of whimsy" I add is not even close to her artistic flair,
I do enjoy using markers and colored pencil like she does.

Here is another card I made recently with this set:

You can find the details for this card here.

Today's card images are indeed colored with Prismacolor Premier pencils and some
Distress Ink by Ranger around the edges and on the bunny.

I also used some Glossy Accents by Ranger to highlight the cabbages.

Everlasting Authentique pad
The patterned paper is by Authentique, and the beautiful blue is Color Made Easy,
both of which can be purchased in the Flourishes store,
along with this stamp set.

I used one of Flourishes' Exclusive Dies to make my sentiment tag.

Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die Set

Enjoy the Journey,


  1. Oh, my goodness, Bev....this is simply STUNNING! Wow! I just LOVE the way you coloured the cabbages and bunny!

    P.S. I also used this set,'s my FAVE!

  2. Ah, that bunny is in the garden again. LOL. I love your card. This is a beautiful set.

  3. What a beautiful, serene card. I love the added purple on the bunny's body. Great way to create the flow amongst it and the cabbages.
