Happy Tuesday!  It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday(FTTC131) Challenge!   Heather is the challenge host this week.  She is challenging us to use a recipe.  Something pink, one button, ribbon,  and lace.  Anything else is a go, but these four elements need to be part of your creation.  Looking forward to seeing what you cook up with this fabulous recipe!


For my card, I am using several Flourishes stamp sets.  I was in the mood to create my own background papers (DP by ME) using elements from several sets.    I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  I am using the small lacy medallions from the Lace Edges set stamp several times in different colors on the bottom panel.   I then used the With Gratitude stamp set that you can earn for FREE.  Check out the link to see how.  This set comes with a sentiment border with thank you written in many languages.  I stamped this sentiment strip several times on the bottom.  For the top portion of the card background, I used the decorative border strip from the Fanciful Flourishes set stamped at an angle using different colors.  All the panels were ink distressed.  I stitched the base.   I used some Spellbinder's for focal image.   I am using one of the sentiments and images from the newly released  Sweet Days of Summer (still part of the New Release Bundle pricing til August 20th).   I finished with a piece of lace, dyed to match seam binding, and a bow with button!


Check out what the rest of the team created!
