It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC39)! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host this week. Our challenge host is Kathy Jones(Wattle) all the way from Australia. Please give Kathy a warm welcome! Thanks so much, Kathy for hosting a challenge with us. Kathy is challenging us to use border punches or borderabilities. You decide if you want to use just one border, mix different patterns, or layer several for a fanciful look. Whatever you decide, we would love to see what you create! Have fun with this one! The skies the limit!

For my card, I am using two of the newly released October sets called Dove and Holly and Drummer Boy. I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. This cardstock is so fabulous it is my go to cardstock. I love this soft colored ivory hue. More importantly, though, is how it takes inks of all kinds. I stamped my doves and holly images using Momento tuxedo black ink. I colored my image using Flourishes Copic Color Collection1. I stamped the two vertical panels with one of the holly and berry images from the Drummer Boy set. Of course, a more detailed holly and berry image is included in the Dove and Holly set. I am using one of the tonal pattern pieces from the 7 gypsies Savannah paper pack that I embossed with a holly and berry sizzix plate. I used my scarlet jewel ink spot dtp to enhance the holly and berry texture. I sponged all the edges of my ivory cardstock with ranger antique linen, vintage photo, and some tea dyed inks. I added a spellbinders fancy label sentiment. I added a double row of spellbinders pierceabilities behind the label sentiment. I finished with my fou fou bow, button and gold curly cue cording.



This card is also for Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C8) to use at least three geometrics on your card. My card is square with layered squared backgrounds, I used a circle and a rectangle.

This card is also for Jen del Muro's SFYTT. Of course, I just realized that I left out the panel behind the circle. Ooops!
