Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC123)! I am your FTTC host this week. This week my pick for a challenge is "In the Bag!" Or, I guess I should say "With the Bag!"  Use brown grocery bag paper on your card or project. You can use a brown lunch bag to create a gift item or small scrapbook album. Or, you can use sections of the bag to create a background, border, or accent piece for your card or project. Never fear, though.  If you do not have any brown grocery bag paper to play with, kraft cardstock will work, too!  We want everyone who wants to play along to be able to play with us!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

 


For my card, I am using Flourishes Cherries and Peaches stamp sets. I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. I layered a couple of Spellbinder's.  My background paper was created cutting a section of brown paper bag to size.  I embossed, stitched, and inked distressed the edges.  I stamped my cherries and colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.   I finished with  a seam binding bow, button, and sentiment tag! 

This card is  also for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC328)! Cherry Night Cakes! We are using Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, and Crumb Cakes. You must check out the link to find out what the dessert option and to play along with us!  This card is also for The Kraft Journal: Welcome Summer Challenge!

  13. Betty I'm drooling almost as much as my 4 month old does. Good grief! AWESOME. The sugary glitter on the cherries is just sending me in circles. So fantastic. I've been holding out for awhile on buying the cherries set but I just don't know how much longer I'll last after seeing this card. Dang, girl! ;)
