It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC10). Silke Ledlow is our challenge hostess this week. She is bringing us a fun challenge that I am sure will be one of your favorites!!!! We are to use our favorite Flourishes stamp set!!!! There are so many fabulous choices to choose from it will be a challenge just to choose. However, never fear, if you do not yet own any Flourishes stamps, yet, please choose your favorite stamp set of all time. Also, check the Flourishes Blog to find out how you can get some Flourishes Favorites Designer Picks stamps today at a special price just for today!!!!

One of my favorite Flourishes sets is the Thank You set. This set has always been one of my favorite sets. I love the two different types of tulip images in the set as well as the script gratitude paragraph. The other sentiments in the set are must haves as well. I love the different looks I can achieve with just a script image and a tulip. I am also participating in the Flourishes paper pieced challenge for part of the release week celebrations.

For my card, I am using some of the marbled watercolored patterns in the pack of the Basic Gray Porcelain dp. I stamped my tulip twice onto the green sheet and the multicolored pink sheet. I cut out the images and enhanced the paper alittle with some copics to create some depth and shadow. I love the finish look!!!
