Happy Tuesday!  It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday(FTTC132) Challenge!   Cindy is the challenge host this week.  She is challenging us to have the sentiment as the focal point of our cards/projects this week.   Looking forward to seeing what you cook up with this fabulous recipe!


For my card, I am using Flourishes Hollyhocks set.   I stamped the floral image with a thumping technique which gives subtle areas and darker areas of the image depending where you thump.  I then stamped the sentiment in the center with Memento tuxedo black ink.  I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  I am using My Mind's Eye Breeze designer paper. All the panels were ink distressed.  I stitched the base and horizontal panels .   I used some Spellbinder's  for focal image and frame.   I finished with some cream seam binding, bow with button, ivory memory thread, and a few tiny pearls.


Check out what the rest of the team created!
