Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC23)!!! This week Dee Jackson is our host!!! Dee is challenging us to cut it out and pop it up!!! We are cutting out items and popping them up to add dimension and interest to our cards!!! The sky is the limit with this one. Just remember to cut it out and pop it up!!! We would love to see what you create!!!

I am using the
Waterlilies and Damask stamp sets. I am using the Flourishes classic white cardstock. I colored my waterlilis using the Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Buttercup, Daffodil, and Spring Greens. I cut out the flowers and popped them up to add dimension.

I just love the damask background with this beautiful waterlily. I thought it gave the look of some very elegant water swirls. I stamped the damask in Adirondack POOL which matches beautifully with SU new in color bermuda bay. I outlined some of the damask swirls with the C1 copic markers from the Neutral Collection to give the background some depth and dimension. I finished my card using a
Spellbinders tag with grosgrain ribbon detailing.

Be sure to check out the other
