It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!   This week Tammy Hershberger is our challenge host! We are making "Birthday" cards!  Fun and Easy!  So, play along with us!  We would love to see your Birthday cards!

For my card I am using Flourishes Cherry Blossom and Kids Play stamp sets.  I stamped my image onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock and used Memento tuxedo black.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.  I used various patterns and spellbinders to create the finished look.  I am using the colors from SCS Color Combo(CC311) Always Perfect Roses!

I created the mini pom pom flower/accent. I purchased some all white mini pom pom fringe and dyed it with coffee.  I just love this rich aged mocha patina I got just from letting it soak.   I cut a piece and spiral rolled it to create a little mini pom pom flower/accent for my dyed seam binding.  I love the way it looks and think it is different and unexpected. 


Make sure to check out the other blog team designers to see their Birthday card creations!
