It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC5)!!!! Thanks so much for all who played along with us last week. This week Becca Feeken is hosting the Timeless Tuesday Challenge. She is challenging us to use our Spellbinders's!!!! If you have any of these products I am sure they need no dusting off. For many they have become as necessary as the trimmer and adhesive. If it is a cutting edge, petite, scalloped, long, short, framed, flowered, or all of these, you are to make a card using your Spellbinders's. No Spellbinders? Do not fret you can use your favorite punches.

For this challenge I had to borrow my SIL cuttlebug!!!!! Thanks so much, Nicole for letting me use your cuttlebug until I get mine back.

I am using the Flourishes Summer Blossoms set. I was in the mood for bold and dramatic. I have combined Memory Box Fernbrae and Basic Gray Marrakech paper packs. Both are available at Flourishes . The colors work so beautifully with riding hood red and pacific point. Love the print patterns, too. I think the colors work great with this dainty flower image as well. I stamped one of the stems that comes in the set. I then stamped several flowers and colored them using copics and permanent markers. I love this blue color. I use my ink essentials pen for the little dots in the centers. I cut each flower out and colored the edges with a blue marker. I added dimensionals and arranged my flowers. I am using layered oval nestabilities, layered ribbon labels, and one of the little pieces in the decorative frames as a butterfly look. I finished with some gold domes/pearls.
