 Happy Tuesday!   Flourishes Timeless Tuesday(FTTC135) Challenge!   Beate is the challenge host this week!  Beate is challenging us to make a shape card or basic square card.  Anything other than the standard A2.   Looking forward to seeing what you create. 

For my card,  I decided to actually make a shape card since I make a lot of square cards.  It was a little different for me to work with a shape.  I decided to embrace it and layer it up!  I am using Flourishes Warm Winter Wishes set for the sentiment.   I am also using another sentiment from the With Gratitude stamp set that you can earn for FREE.  I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock.  

I started out with a large scalloped hexagon Spellbinder's die cut and  cut it out with one of the peaks at the top with the seam.  I then cut out various patterns from my Authentique Splendid paper pad.  I ink distressed all the panels and stitched them together.   I added three  Spellbinder's embossed hearts layered together for dimension.  I  used a tiny spool to create a spool message sentiment charm.  I cut the strip of designer paper.  I stamped the sentiment repeatedly across. I used some score tape to adhere the paper to the spool and started rolling.  I added it to my card with metallic gold memory thread.  Love this stuff! 

I am using the sketch from Moxie Fab World: The Shape Sketch and  the Tuesday Trigger photo for my color inspiration and bold patterns! 
















Check out what the rest of the team created!
