It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC105)! I am the challenge host this week.  I am challenging you to patterns. This week we are adding not one, not two, but three pattern papers to our cards. The patterns can be bold and dramatic or soft and mellow! Your choice! Love to see what you create!



For my card I am using the newly released Hello Hyacinth! This set is absolutely gorgeous and has two beautiful hyacinth arrangements. I also fell in love with all the fabulous sentiments. Did you know that March 7th is World Hyacinth Day?  Hey, the big day is just around the corner!  This set is still available with the monthly release bundle pricing, too!  




I chose this beautiful vase design to color for my card today. I think the image is just gorgeous!  I am using the trio of colors from SCS CC310 Wild Saffron Points!   I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I am using Flourishes Classic White cardstock. I colored my image using Flourishes Copic Color Collections. I finished with some pearl swirls and a polka dotted sheer bow.  Just in case you are wondering, my three patterned papers are all the same colors.  I am using three different patterns of so saffron dp.  The third pattern was used in the tiny butterflies.  I said the patterns could be bold or subtle! 


Make sure you check out the other blog team designers to see how they used three patterns!
