It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC70)!  Dee Jackson is our challenge host this week. Dee is challenging us to a color combo. We are to use black and white with a third color of choice. So, black, white, plus ONE! Have fun with it and we look forward to seeing what you create!

For my card I am using a deep red cardstock as my third color in the black and white plus one challenge.  I stamped all of the paper you see.  I am using Flourishes Fanciful Favorites stamp set.  I stamped the red piece with the largest damask image.  I stamped the Flourishes white cardstock panel with the long border piece that comes in the set.  I used a script in a warm toned ink that shows alittle bit on the cardstock.  Alittle bit of a contrast.  I stamped one of the smaller images in the Birds and Vine set as my focal point.  I then added some lace trim, a lace trim flower with button and gold pearl center and some soft sponging.  I love the simplicity of this piece! 



This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC274)! Check out the link to find out about the colors and the dessert option!

I am giving you a sneak peek of a new set called Humming Along to be released by Flourishes. First of all, you are just going to flip when you see the releases this week.  I believe the SDT are starting sneaks tomorrow.  As for this set, I just love these trumpet vines!  You are going to be amazed at the images in this set!
