Happy Tuesday!  It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday(FTTC130) Challenge!   Tammy is the challenge host this week.   Tammy is challenging us to use fruits on our cards.  The FOF team is giving you a sneak peek at a new set being released this week called "Wild for Watermelon."   Check out the link to find out how to play along for this special challenge and what to do to win a stamp set! 


For my card, I am using Flourishes soon to be released  "Wild for Watermelon"  stamp set.  I must say watermelon is my FAVORITE fruit!   I sometimes opt for a plate of sliced watermelon instead of a meal.  So, when I found out that Flourishes was releasing a watermelon set I was thrilled.  Then, to find out I get to sneak peek it...awesome!  I used one of the watermelon wedges stamped twice, colored, and cut out to layer around one of the fun sentiments that come in the set.  I also used one of the sentiments to stamped some background text on one of the panel using versamark.   I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection.    I used some Spellbinder's for focal image and border.    I finished with a black gingham bow!
