It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC94)!  This week Cindy Haffner is hosting. She is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much of an explanation necessary. You can turn it and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck! We cannot wait to see what you create with it!                                                                    
I am somewhat late with my FTTC card.  I guess better late than never!  I am having some computer issues.  They are not totally straightened out yet, but it is better than not being able to load at all.  I am using Flourishes Seasonal Wreathes and Christmas Classics (sentiment) stamp sets. I stamped the berry wreathe in Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection using Dusty Rose.  I used a glue pen to add spots of glue on some of the berries to add some glitter accenting.  I decided the wreathe need a few tiny hearts to compliment the sentiment.  I used my MS heart border punch and added the tiny hearts that are made from the punch outs in the border.   I layered my card with Webster's Pages Waiting For Santa and Sweet Seasons and Memory Box Tinsel.   I am using the colors from Mona Pendleton's CR84FN5.  I lightly sponged all of the edges with camomile ink.  I also used two different colors of thread when I stitched.  One in ivory and one in chocolate.  This two toned sewing tip I picked up at Mona's blog.

This card is for a few more blog challenges! Pile It On: Winter Means:  Christmas decorating! Paper Romance:  Favorite Things (BOWS, seam tape, dp, gold pearls)!Scrappy Frog:  Christmas! Creative Inspiration:  Christmassy!  Simon  Says:  Sparkle!  A Spoon Full of Sugar:  Anything Goes!  If the Shoe Fits:  Sparkle and Shine! RRR:  Christmas Theme! Frosted Designs:  Distressing! Meljen's:  Sparkle and Shine Ellephantastic:  Christmas! OSAAT: Christmas Season!

 Be sure to check out the blog team designers to see what they created with the sketch!


As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
