Just like spring, Flourishes’ March release is blooming with goodness! If you are ready for some fresh picks, then you have definitely come to the right place! Flourishes’ tagline of having classic and timeless images couldn’t hold more true when you look at our March offerings!

This first set is Marcella Hawley at her finest. And, she’s paired beautiful peonies with one of the world’s most beloved women to bring you a touching and beautiful set to honor those special to you — including your mom!


Mother’s Words of Wisdom takes some of the best quotes from Mother Theresa, and brings them to life. All five sentiments in the set were designed to fit perfectly in this gorgeous frame of peonies illustrated by Marcella Hawley. It’s an image that anyone you care about, including your mother, will be sure to cherish. Set measures 4″ by 6″.

This new wreath image was so much fun to color. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with the largest Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The image was colored with Copic Markers ( Peonies: RV10, RV52, RV55, Y21, YR21, YR23   Leaves: G40, G43, G46    Background: BGoooo, BGooo0) and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Tear Drop Circle die.

A sentiment from the same set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a smaller circle die. The edges were colored with Copic Marker BG0000. It was adhered into the center of the image with dimensionals.

A 4 3/16″  square of white cardstock was embossed with the new M-Bossabilities folder Elegance. It was stitched to a 4 3/8″ square of light blue cardstock. Ribbon was threaded through one of the Tear drops in the circle before the image was adhered to the center of the layers. The ribbon was then tied into a bow and everything was adhered to a card base, cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

Gold Smooch Glitz was added to the center of the flowers. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.
