It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC8)!!!! Thanks so much for all who played with us last week!!!! This week I am hosting the challenge. I am challenging us to Emboss It!!! There are a lot of different types of embossing options to choose from. In addition, there are many different techniques to combined with embossing. We would love to see what you all create.

I am using two stamp sets Timeless Quotes and Spring Ephemerals. The quote set is a new release this month. My sentiment is stamped directly to the new vintage Jenni Bowlin mini papers. I am LOVING these mini papers!!! The images are scaled to the paper's size so they are so easy to work with. I am using 5 patterns from two packs Black Line and Red/Black Line. I love the vintage look to these papers!!! Each piece has distressed sponged already around the edges. How cool is that!?!? For each pattern I chose, I embossed each panel with a similar patterned cuttlebug embossing folder. I am using a typed page from a book(script folder), a mini vintage damask look(textile folder), a mini black polka dot(swiss dot folder), and a mini houndstooth print(houndstooth folder). The main piece in the center has the bird on a branch with little outlined flowers. I stamped the leaf image from the Spring Ephemerals set around the edges in Antique Linen. I then sponged more antique linen to the edges of the main panel only. I stamped my quote in riding hood red. I tried to make the image not look too perfect as well. I sort of smeared the edges of the letters to create an old worn effect. I added my frayed gingham ribbon with flower and vintage button detail as well as some assorted vintage buttons to opposite corners. I added two ribbon tabs to create some balance. I love the patterns, textures, and shabby chic vintage feel to this card. I also think I have a NEW favorite paper!!!! I want them all!!!
