Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC117)! I am your FTTC host this week.   This week my pick for a challenge is "Anything Goes!"   This means you make a card or project any way you like!  Flourishes stamps are not required for this challenge, but if you have them by all means use them!  We would love to see what you create! 

For my card, I am using Flourishes A Guiding Light, Antique Map, and Fanciful Flourishes stamp sets. I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I stamped the damask image from the Fanciful Flourishes set.  I partially over stamped the Antique Map with Memento rose bud ink.  I used a french script background in antique linen to touch alittle on the sides.  I added a cuttlebug folder section and stitch all around in an ivory thread. I layered a couple of Spellbinder's.  I sponged the oval die cut center with some Memento rose bud ink. In the main panel, I stamped the lighthouse scene to the side with going gray ink.  I stamped the sentiment in the center with the rose bud ink.  I inked distressed all of the edges.  I finished with a crinkle ribbon bow and topped it off with a prima flower.
