It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC80)! Silke Ledlow is our challenge host. She is challenging us to a color scheme! This one is not only easy and fun, but the colors are sure to make a beauty. Simply make a card using the four colors of hot pink, soft yellow, kraft, and black that are listed in the picture and link it here! While Flourishes stamps are not required, if you have them by all mean use them! We would love to see what you create!


For my card I am using Flourishes Nasturtiums and Falling Leaves stamp sets.  I decided to make a round card.  I used my CM cutting tool to cut out a 4.5 circle.  I can hardly wait to get my hands on some of the Spellbinder's Grands!  Anyway, I used two patterns of some Basic Grey kraft collection.  I divided the circle with some black braid trimming.  I used a sizzix shape for the main sentiment and a punch for the second sentiment.  I shadow stamped the main sentiment first with black ink then with hot pink.   I added a decorative pearl flourish to the main sentiment. I also created a trifold back for it to be a free standing circle card!   I lightly sponged the edges of both sentiments and the kraft cardstock with Memento sand ink.  This card is for the following challenges: 

BasicGrey Challenge: Week #26 BasicGrey and Pearls  
The Shabby Tea Rooms Week #23 Inspiration Challenge (Both cards apply- picture at left)





This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC284)!  Always Cherry Pink!  Check out the the link to find out about the dessert option!  This card is also using the Midnight Madness Sketch (MMSC67)! Fabulous sketch!  For this card I am using Flourishes Dove and Holly stamp set.  I am also using Champagne net ribbon with gold wire bow and curly ques.  If you have not tried this net ribbon before you really should check it out!  Amazing stuff!


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  I do apologize for the long post, but it is the first cards I have posted  to my blog in a week! 

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with the sketch!

  12. Hi there, sweet Betty!! I'm SO glad you have some cards for me to drool over this morning! I always love your creations. Love, love, love the circle card with the free standing backing to it. That is just genius. You did an outstanding job with that color combo and the sketch. Love the sentiment, the flowers, and the pearls.
    Stunning holiday card, too! That bird image is fabulous, and I adore the fancy edging, the net trim and the sentiment at the top.
    thanks so much for playing along with us again at TSTR.

  16. Betty, I always know I'll be in for a treat when I see your creations. Both cards are awesome and the one you did for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge couldn't be more beautiful. Your attention to using exquisite details always make your cards stand out. I love that as exquisite as your details are, they don't take away from the beautiful image focal point!!
