It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC93)! This week Dee Jackson is our challenge host! It is begining to look a lot like Christmas so many of us really need to get some Christmas cards ready for mailing! Dee is challenging us to "Just Do It!" Get those Christmas cards done! You may need to make several for this challenge! We would love to see what you create!

I am using Flourishes newly released set called Vintage Postcard.  I stamped the main image onto kraft cardstock and embossed in white.  I distressed the edges and used ranger vintage photo to sponge the edges.  For my background, I wanted to create a soft collage feel using the colors from SCS CC297.  Pefect Pizzazz Breezes.  I combined several sets to create this look.  I used images from Christmas Music, Fanciful Flourishes, and I Believe!  Still practicing with my sewing machine stitching.  Aside from my seam binding vintage bow with button accenting.  I added a total contrast with my die cut sparkly flourish! 

My card is for a few other challenges, too!
Incy Wincy:  Rock On!  "Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!"
Pile It On:  Friend and Family Holiday!  Christmas scene!
RRR:  Christmas Theme!
Stamps R Us:  Sparkles and Scallops!
Anything Goes:  Emboss It!
Gingerloft:  Great Outdoors!
Paper Sundaes:  Pick Your Toppings(ribbon, blue, punches, and embossing)!

C4C63:  Christmas Card!
Creative Belli Challenge: (Something Old, New, and Blue)!
Gingersnap:  Sewing Notions(button, seam tape, sewing)
CCEE- Store bought flowers
