It is time for FLourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC19)! This week Cindy Haffner is our host. She is challenging us to use designer papers. Now, I realize that designer papers are about as necessary to card making as spellbinders die cuts, but there is a lot that you can do with designer papers. You can stamp on them, use border punches, color them, paper piece, die cut shapes, cut out images to use as a focal point, or just to enhance the look of your card. Whichever option you choose to do, we would love to see what you create.

I am using Coffee with Friends set. I love paper piecing the cups. I decided to go all out out with four columns of paper pieced coordinated coffee cups. I love the finished look. It is bold and dramatic. I used some much loved designer paper and chose different patterns to stamp my cups on and cut out individually. I finished my card with a sentiment from the Timeless Quotes set. I want to add that the little silver pearl domes came in a care package to me from Silke(Sparklegirl)!!! She is the best!!! Thanks, girl!!!
