Happy Tuesday!  I am your Flourishes Timeless Tuesday (FTTC129) Challenge host this week!   My challenge this week is easy peasy. All you have to do is make a card or project showcasing your favorite flower or flowers! Our gallery should be blooming with beauties this week!   Looking forward to seeing what you create!


For my card, I am using Flourishes Spring Bouquet for the focal image and images from Sweet NatureMoments in Time, and Strips and Stripes  stamp sets to make my background patterns.    I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I embossed, stitched, and inked distressed the edges of all the different panels. I stamped my Spring Bouquet and colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.    I used some Spellbinder's for focal image and tag.  I also used the negative space from the postage frame in Spellbinder's Creative Book Pages dies to create a unique ivory border.  I added some different colored sparkle to finish it all off with a must have Quickie glue pen!  (I realize I have been a wee bit extreme with my glitter of late, but I really cannot help myself)!  I finished with a piece of ivory crocheted trim and seam binding with bow!  I am using Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #22 this week for my card!  Great sketch, Chupa!

  21. Betty, this is just such a beauty! You used those stamps in a fabulous way. I guess you are as addicted to glitter as I am to sponging as of late. :-) Of course, your button/bow trim is awesome, as usual.
