It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC69) ! This week Barbara Anders is hosting! Barbara is challenging us to a one layered card. Not much explanation required with this challenge! Go have fun and show us what you can do! 

The card for Barbara's challenge is below.   The top card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC273)!  Cocoa Banana Gardens!  It is also to let you know that I am teasing you a bit with a card I made using one of Flourishes newest releases called Cherry Blossoms.  Today is your lucky day! One of the FOF Blog Team designers has the Cherry Blossom set up for grabs!! To win it just visit all the FOF blogs links below and leave a comment on each blog including mine. One winner will be chosen from all the comments combined. Good Luck :)


ONE LAYER:  This card is not without a story.  ONE LAYER cards!?!?  While the concept seems easy peasy, it is so very hard for me.  LOL!  I have ONE layer, though.  I did it!   I decided to use Flourishes Beach Life stamp set for this card.  I actually have a pile of stuff on my desk that I junked.  I tried borders and edges and stuff.   I settled on this one.  Nothing but an Ivory A2 card.  I debated coloring  the palm tree, but decided with a comment like "Wish You Were Here"....if I were truly enjoying myself so much and wanted you here,  I would not have time to color it.  So, there! My excuse for leaving this card clean and simple.  Now, while technicalities are just that a technicality...I did not read anywhere that the embellishments could not be layered up! Hee Hee! I added some of my favorite gingham ribbon! This stuff is a cotton poly blend and has a wonderful hand to it.  This is black/ivory gingham. Love it!  I added a big black button with a flower and gold dew drop.  I added a sentiment tag, too!  Whew....got it done!

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



The Cherry Blossom card! I stamped my image using Memento tuxedo black ink onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I colored using Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I am using Basicgray Cappella dp.  I added a few flourished Line Pearls to the card.   I finished with some gold wired net ribbon amd a Silver Finishing Touches metal adornment that I affixed one of Line Pearl hearts to.  Love this unusal coloring and color combo.  I really love how it looks!
