It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC64)! It is the end of the month so we have a challenge hostess! This week Karen Wallace is our host! Karen is challenging us to vintage styled cards! Everyone sort of has in their own minds what vintage means to them, so without giving you any direction, just create a card that defines a vintage style to you! We would love to see what you create! Also, just wanted to remind everyone that while each FTTC challenge has a weekly winner, we also draw a monthly winner from all of the FTTC for that month. So, if there was a challenge in April you still would like to participate in, there is still a chance to win! You can play as often as you like! Check out FTTC61, FTTC62, and FTTC63! The weekly and monthly winners will be announced next week!

This card is also for SCS Color Combo Challenge!  This week's colors are Barely Banana, Old Olive, and Ballet Blue!  This week's dessert option: RED Embellishments  This card is also for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #7 "Comforts of Home." 

Take a look to see what the other blog team designers created vintage styled!
