It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC37)!!! The blog design team is celebrating Flourishes(active store link here) release week with you. We are sharing two of the six sets that will be released this Friday!!! Christmas Drummers & Musical Score and Words. Cindy Haffner is our challenge host this week. She has a sketch challenge for you. Instead of it being just one sketch, though, it is a sketch four ways. The same sketch turned a quarter turn to give us four different looks. We like to call it a Sketch March in keeping with the drum and musical sets we are showcasing. So, you can decide if you want sketch option A, B, C, or D!!! You may even want to do all four!!! We would love to see which sketch you choose and what you create!!!

Be sure to check out the Flourishes Blog to see all the different sketches. I chose sketch B! I am using Flourishes
Classic Ivory cardstock. I stamped the musicals score for my background. I heavily sponged the edges to create more of an old world vintage feel. I created another background layer for my focal area. I stamped this section using one of the little holly leaves with berries images along the other instruments, but I only colored the drum and cut it out to make it stand out. I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Dusty Rose, Daffodil, Flesh Tones 1, and Warm Neutrals. I finished with some gold pearls, gold cording, and a sheer ribbon bow.



Please check out the other blog team designer's to see which sketch she chose and the details of their cards!!! As always, thanks so much for stopping by!!! Your comments are great appreciated!!!

  20. Love the music script DP for the BG paper. The colours are wonderful, love the sponging of the sentiment (I really need to practice mine as it sucks LOL)and I love how you used the embossed panel with the brads across the top. The bow is so soft and love all the loops it has. You have mastered that bow maker :D Great card, Betty.
