It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC67)! This week I am your challenge host! I am challenging everyone to use "chipboard." You can use some already decorated chipboard or find some "bare" chipboard and dress it up! You can make tags, embellishments, or stamp your focal image directly to the stuff! Whether you are painting it up, cutting it out, or using some already pre-cut and decorated chipboard, we would love to see what you create using chipboard! This card is also for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC271) and SCS Technique Challenge (TLC273) "I've Been Framed!" 


For my card I am using Flourishes Strawberries stamp set for the sentiment, Signs of Spring set for the cut out and paper tole flower, and the newly released Cherry Blossom set for the solid image flowers stamped with the sentiment. I stamped the images using Flourishes Classic White cardstock. I colored the daffodil using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Buttercup, Sunflower, Tiger Lily, and Evergreen. For the chipboard challenge I am using a spellbinders frame that I cut out with cardboard and layered with Flourishes Classic White cardstock cut out with the same frame. I stencil this top portion and used foam tap to pop up the frame so the sentiment is nested inside.  I make frames quite a bit, but never thought to use chipboard to make the frames sturdier!  Love that it does not collapse on the long sides!  Great stuff this chipboard...aka cardboard!  LOL!  I finished my card with some added texture, ribbon, and gold pearls.
