It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC28)!!! This week Silke Ledlow is our challenge host. Silke is challenging us to score it!!! We are to use any scoring tool we have to create score detailing on our cards. If you do not have any neat scoring device, no fear, scoring can be done with the groove of a trimmer and a bone folder or stylus. Your designs can be very intricate to classically simple. Whatever design you go for, we'd love to see what you create.


I am using Summer Botanicals and Timeless Quote stamp sets. I scored a harlequin diamon pattern to act as a piece of decorative paper for my background. I repeatedly scored an 1/8" vertical on chocolate cardstock to go behind my focal point. I stamped two flowers from the Summer Botanicals set, added a quote and a few tiny touches of rhinestones on the flowers, and some ribbon tabs to complete my clean and simple card. This is a 5 X 7 card. I purchased a pack of envys for this size card at Micheals one day when I had a coupon and could NOT find a thing to buy...I KNOW shoppers logic!!! So, I have a few this size I need to make.


A special note: I must say that I use my Score Pal everytime I make a card if I do nothing but score the fold. It has become one of my most used tools aside from my trimmer. I could never thank Deborah Anton enough for her wonderful generosity. Please read about that story here. Again, thanks Deborah!!!

This card is also for SCS CAS challenge CAS27(bling)! I kept the layout and design pretty simple. It is easier for me to score than it is to sort through all my dp...so that was simple, too. I love how it turned out.
