It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC29)! This week Dee Jackson is our challenge host. Dee is challenging us to a color challenge. We are to use red, olive, and black with one other neutral color. So, the skies the limit as long as you use these hues. We look forward to seeing what you create!!!

For my card I am using Flourishes All that Glitters and Sleigh Ride stamp sets. I am using Flourishes classic white cardstock which is wonderful for coloring with copics. I am also using Flourishes Copic Color Collectionsin Poppy, Dusty Rose, Spring Greens, and Fields. I am using spellbinders diecuts. I finished my card with some warm sponging, gold pearls, and gold cording detailing.

I love coloring these ornaments in this set. For this particular card, I colored each ornament with copics, cut out, lined the edges with permanent black marker, and added crystal effects for added dimension. This card is also for the OCC Challenge this week. Loretta challenged the OCC to Christmas in August. I love how my Christmas card turned out!!!
