Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC53), (FS157), and (CC257)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC53)!  Before I continue, I would like to just thank everyone who played along with us last week with all of our FTTC Anniversary Challenges.  It was a fabulous week made extra special by all of your wonderful comments and beautiful cards.  Thanks so much for celebrating a year of Timeless Challenges with us! 

With that said, please give a warm welcome to Barbara Anders, our NEW FOF blog team member! Welcome to the team! Barbara is jumping right in with a challenge. Barbara is challenging us to easel cards. Never tried an easel card before, no problem. Here is an SCS video easel card tutorial which includes ingredients lists, measurements, and individual pictures as well by Beate Johns. We would love to see what you create!

For my card I am using Flourishes Thinking of You, Lace Edges, and Many Sentiments stamp sets.  For my easel card I am using patterns from the Basicgray Nook & Pantry collection.  I am also using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. I am using Spellbinders small labels to make my frame.  I used petite ovals to cut out the layered center.  I created some of my own lace using the new Lace Edges set which I stamped and die cut with the Spellbinders Classic Lace borderabilities.  I sponged it this section heavily using some Ranger vintage photo distressing ink to create the old world lace look that Barbara used in her card here.  This card is also for this week's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge(FS157)!.  I cased Barbara again as I thought it was fun to CASE her as well as do her easel challenge!  What an exciting week for you, Barbara!  I am thrilled since this is my first easel card!  It was fun and easy to do!  Thanks for a great challenge, Barbara!

This card is also for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge (CC257)!  This week is all about Chocolate Durango Shadows!  We are using Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, and Sage Shadows!  The neutral options are ivory, white, and kraft only.   This week's dessert option is Patterns!  Whether you stamp your own patterns, use dp, or create pattern with texture, try to use two or more patterns!
