It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC101!  First of all, I just want to thank all of you who played along with our FTTC100 Celebration Blog Hop!  Gorgeous creations!  Those winners will be announced soon!  This week's challenge is hosted by Dee Jackson!  Dee is challenging us to go BIG!  5 X 7 big that is!   So, go big and make a 5 x7 card with us!  We would love to see what you create! 


For my card I am using Flourishes Cherry Blossoms stamp set.  I am using one of the sentiments.     I have been challenging myself to making manly cards lately.  I have several male birthdays coming up and I just thought I would get a head start.  When I saw the WMS30 sketch I just knew it would be perfect for a manly card.  I used various paper pieces and patterns to follow the SCS CC306 Color Combo Challenge. CC306: Bravo Pizzazz Breezes!  Love these colors! 

I have included this card in a few blog challenges.
Tip Top Tuesday:  All Sentimental!  Sew Many Challenges: Birthday Celebration!
Craft Your Days AwayAnything Goes  Crafty Pad -  SomethingNEW!  New brads...had but not used 
OSAAT- New!  Stamp with the dragon:  For my STUD!The Crazy Challenge:   Buttons(I inserted my decorative brad into the center and created a vintage looking button)! Pile it On:  Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes: Anything but square!Simons Says Stamp and Show:  Polka Dots
Creative Inspiration:  Birthday! Secret Crafter: with LOVE!

TIP:  I am giving new life to my decorative brads by either inserting the prongs into the button holes or cutting the prongs off and adhering with a glue dot to a button.  Makes the button look more expensive and gives a more vintage feel!






I am also including the card that I made for last week's SCS Color Challenge, but have not had a chance to blog yet.  For this card I used Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes set.  I just heart this little snowman(woman)!  I dressed her all up in pinks!   From my post last week at SCS you could not see the sentiment as my big bow covered it up. And, the wonderful touches of sparkle on the snowlady was not visible from the initial picture.




The  right photo shows you where the sentiment lurks under the pink bow.  I added a clear gem to the center of the "O" for a touch of sparkle.  The little snow lady shows a few touches of glitter added with a glue pen.  Love the glue pens.  Let's you put touches of glitter exactly where you want it.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Check out the other Flourishea blog team members and see what they created with the Go Big Challenge!

Cindy   Dee   Silke   Maki, and Tammy!
