Welcome to Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 100th Celebration Blog Hop!  To celebrate 100 Flourishes FTTC Challenges, we are having a hop and it starts NOW!  Check out the link to find out how to play along with us!  Everyone can play and anyone can win!  You have until midnight tonight to link up and all weekend to hop around! 








For my card I am using Flourishes Sunflowers stamp set.  I stamped the flower using Memento tuxedo black onto Flourishes Classic ivory cardstock.(My favorite in either white or ivory).  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  For this particular card I was going for more muted tones to coordinate with the inspiration photo.  I chose the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch(SSCC99)!  I am using color inspiration from the Play Date Cafe Challenge 64!  To add to  my list of favorites, I really love large flowers.  My favorites are hydrangea, hibiscus, and sunflower.  I love coloring with copics, cutting out, and popping up big flowers.  I am  using some of my favorite Webster's Pages designer paper.  While this pack has Christmas patterns, many still work since the paper is double-sided.  I am a also adding  as part of my patterns some BasicGrey manilla dp.  I added my favorite gold pearls, layered Spellbinders, embossing folder(swiss dot), dimensionals, and seam binding.  I also used some wonderful BasicGrey kraft brads to dress up my button on my bow.  I just insert the brad prongs into the button holes and wrap and you have instant vintage buttons.  Love this look! 
This may be a new favorite!  I also love to add some sponge detailing.  Here, the focal image gets some Ranger Ink scattered straw accenting.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
