It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC89)! Maki Jones is the challenge host this week. Maki is challenging us to focus on the sentiment. Create a card or project with the sentiment as the main focus. We would love to see what you create. I am using the newly released or should I say a re-release version of an old Flourishes favorite.  It is a single stamp called Rejoice with all the Flourishes and ivy detailing needed to make a perfect Christmas card!  I am using a layered Spellbinder's Label 17.   I am using Flourishes classic ivory cardstock.  I colored the image with Flourishes Copic Colors Collections.  I also used some BasicGray Jovial dp for my card. 

I am using the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch MMSC76!  I always try to guess from the sneak peek which one of the choices I am closest too.  I did turn it and add a honking bow! 

My card is also for a few more challenges!
SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC293)!  Concord Cherry Olives! 
Gingerloft Challenge 4:  Winter
Our Creative Corner:  Embellishments/More the Better! 
Paper Cutz Challenge 63 Anything Goes

  29. Betty, you couldn't have made a better choice of dp to go with this awesome image. What a perfect card for Christmas. Love your ribbon/button treatment. I don't think I told you I got to visit Flourishes this summer while I was in Orange Beach, AL Just took a short trip to Pensacola, called, and got to go by. It was such a wonderful shopping experience.
