ODBD and FTTC!!!!

This card is for today's SCS Color Challenge(CC212)!!!! Thanks so much Emily for a fabulous color combo. We are to use chocolate chip, pink pirouette, and riding hood red.

I am using one of the Anniversary Design team scripture sets released this month at ODBD. I love the size and mixed fonts of these scripture stamps. I am using some of my SU Bella Rose dp with some variety of punches and nestablities for my card. I finished it with some sizzix corner details and a ribbon slide. I am also using an Ornare Paper Piercing template. These templates are amazing. I would say it is truly necessary to get the piercing tool...learned this lesson the hard way...lol. The piercing tool has a really fine long tip and glides through the pierced holes like butter.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC9)!!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC9)!!!! This week Dee Jackson is hosting the challenge. She is challenging us to Go Green!!!! What does that mean? Well, it means that you have to find something to redo, to reuse, so you can say you recycled!!! I know you have many items that were created that did not quite make it on a card and you stashed it away for another time. Also, there are all kinds of non-craft items in the home waiting to be reused for something crafty. So, the time is now!!!! Let us go green and recycle those items!!!! We can hardly wait to see what you do!!!!!.

I am using two stamp sets. One of the new releases this month Timeless Quotes and I Love Roses. I am using just the rosebud image and I have paired it with the friendship quote. I have used some of the Basic Gray Porcelain dp in the background. For the go green challenge, I am using a jeweled hairpin that used to belong to my daughter. I tucked it in behind the ribbon knot. I did add little pearls in the center of the jeweled flowers to coordinate with the accent pearls I used.

For my card I have chosen some ripe avocado and berry sorbet cardstocks with some basic gray porcelain and ripe avocado bitty dot dp. I am using the curved rectangles and petite oval spellbinders and lots of foam dots for dimension. This card is stacked and piled high. I colored my rosebud with copics and sponged inside the oval nesties with some cameo coral. I used the cuttlebug swiss dots on the two-toned curved rectangle piece. I finished off my card with the scallop border punch detailing and some halfback pearl detailing in the corners. I wanted to include a picture of the card from the side so you can see just how thick this card is with all the layers and foam dots. WOW!!!!
