All of us are so excited to be a part of the Flourishes "Timeless Tuesday". We, the Friends of Flourishes, will be bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. This week Cindy Haffner is hosting our first ever Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. To kick off this challenge in a Flourishes way she wants us all to use flourishes and swirls of any kind. So if it has a flourish or a swirl, it will work. Check the Flourishes Newsletter for challenge and link information, and to find out what you need to do to win!!!! Names of all those that entered will be shuffled through random.org and the winner gets a $10 gift certificate to use in the Flourishes store. Look out for surprise monthly drawings as well!

I used the Flourishes, LLC Lace Heart for my card. I just love this heart stamp. I combined real red, regal rose, and gp white. I created my background paper by stamping the heart several times. I stamped the heart in regal rose across the page, then turned it upside down and stamped in between. I love the finished look with all those flourishes and swirls. I stamped my heart for my focal image. I stamped the word LOVE that comes in the set in real red. I added a a layered prima with a pearl button to the center. I used my new sizzix swirl die cut to add a few swirls to my flowers along with the MS branch punch. I finished with a bow that came on a Christmas candy box or something. The bow was already tied. All I had to do was clip the back and attach it to the card. It is a very fine red and white strip. I did add a few red basic gray enamel brads.

Be sure to check out the Flourishes Newsletter for challenge details and instructions. Also, check out all the blog teams sites to see what what all the Friends of Flourishes created for the challenge. Becca Feeken , Cindy Haffner , Dee Jackson , and Kimberly Crawford, and Silke Ledlow.
