 It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC54)! This week Dee Jackson is our host! Dee is challenging us to " All About Me". Use what you love and what makes you happy!! Use your favorite colors, stamps, layout, and embellishments! Whatever ROCKS your world! We would love to see what you create!

For my card I am using Flourishes Spring Ephemerals, Clouds Background, and Falling Leaves (sentiment) stamp sets.  For the All About Me challenge these are the items that I love that I chose to use on my card.

-I chose soft suede because it is my favortite in color this year.

-I chose three different spellbinders because I love some spellbinder die cuts. 
-I chose a solid image stamp.  I really love solid image stamps.  If I have to choose those are my "go to" images. 
-I love to rock and roll solid image stamps. Favorite technique to add depth of colors.I am also using Memory Box Gossamer dp which is the first pack of dp I have purchased where I believe I love every single piece in the pack.  The soft hues with tonal patterns.  Some even have my favorite script text. 
-I also am using a layered border punch.  I LOVE to layer border die cuts or punches. 
-I also created a card with many layers and piled it high because I LOVE layers!   I love Flourishes classic cardstocks.  I am using the ivory here.  It comes in white and ivory.  Wonderful stuff!
-I added some tiny butterfly punches because these just work all of the time.   I finished with many gold pearls.  GOT to have my gold pearls! 


Now to comply with the OCC challenge this week.   Something old that is new again!  Technically to use something that we bought that has NOT seen much loving.  Well, I have to say that would be my perfect plum and pale plum ink pads and cardstocks.  I think this was the first time I used the ink pads.  Maybe not...just not sure...kwim?  I have to say these colors mixed with soft suede are just gorgeous!  Oh,I must mention that these are the colors I chose for this week's SCS Color Combo Challenge (CC258)!    We are using Soft Pale Plums!  Soft Suede, Pale Plums, and Perfect Plums!   Sound fabulous, doesn't it?  This week's dessert option is to add a critter.  A bird, a butterfly, or other critter of choice.  I added my tiny butterflies!
