It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC68) ! It is the end of the month so we have us a challenge host! This month's challenge host is Velta Wesson. Velta is challenging us to "make our own flowers"! I know you have seen all of these wonderful dimensional homemade flowers being used everywhere. Now is your chance to make your very own and sport them on your cards, too! They look quite amazing, but they really are not that hard to do! You can use any thing from paper to lace to create your flowers. Check out the Flourishes blog for some links to flower tutorials. Whichever form of flower you choose to create, we would love to have you play along with us! Remember to link your card with the Link system at the Flourishes blog for you chance to win a $10 store gift certificate. Also, check out the blog for more ways to win!

For my card I am using Flourishes Strawberries stamp set.  I am using Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I am also using some of the satin gingham ribbon!  I just love the weight of this gingham ribbon.  Fabulous stuff!   For the "make my own flower" challenge, I made a small flower using the middle and smallest scallop sizzix circle die cuts. I layered, put a brad in between, and scrunch a bit. I used some of the other patterns of the October Afternoon Thrift Store dp. I added a button with a touch of a gold pearl to finish it. I then added it to my gingham bow for a little accent!



This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC272)  Real Bermuda Krafts!   Sharon's notimetostamp Challenge (ssnotime140)!  We have to skew things a bit!  My main image is so not straight! 

Check out the other blog team designers to see what we all created with chipboard!

  25. I'm SO blown away by your coloring, that it's already saved in my "extraordinary cards" file on my laptop, as I subscribe to your blog updates. Your choice of ribbon was inspired, and I love how you've placed a button on top. Your layout is wonderful, it's just an incredible card, and I hope that someday I'll be able to make one just as fantastic. I can hope! :)
