It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC18)! This week Kimberly Crawford is hosting the challenge. She is challenging us to use frames. Now, frames can be something as simple as adding a matt to the main image to "frame" it out, or adding some marker detailing around the main image to create a doodle frame or faux layered frame. In addition to these, you can create your own frames with spellbinder diecut shapes using different materials. There are also ready made frames that you may have to add to your card. Whichever type of frame you choose, we would love to see what you create!!!

This card is also for Sunday's Feature Stamper Challenge(FS121)! Congratulations, Roxie!!! I love your creations and it was hard to choose one to case. I chose this card. I changed the colors, the images, and altered the layout slightly to accomodate my larger image. I kept the embellishments the same, the black card base, and the trio of flowers and theme the same.

I am using the Nasturtiums stamp set. I LOVE this set. I used the largest image for my card. I stamped my image with Palette Noir ink and colored it with copics. I just love this flower set. There are so many wonderful images in the set. You really get a lot of wow for the money. For the "frame it" challenge, I added a repeated loopy die cut around my rectangle frame to create a light feeling frame. I love how it turned out.

I am also hosting the Color Challenge at SCS(CC221)! It is Kiss and Ride Tango! All in honor of the 2008/09 In Colors which will retire in a few weeks.

For this card, I am using the Flourishes Vintage Wallpaper, Thinking of You,and, Timeless Quotes stamp sets. For part of the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday "Frame It" Challenge, I used the frame image from the Thinking of You set to frame my quote. I stamped the Vintage Wallpaper background in riding hood red. I added a punch border, gold pearls, and some prima and hero arts flowers to finish the card.
