Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC60) and CC264!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC60)! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have us a challenge host. This month's challenge host is Denise Marzec(Peanutbee)!   Denise is challenging us to an Inspiration Challenge! Denise has chosen three gorgeous pictures to get inspired by for our cardmaking. Pick one or do all three during the week. We would love to see what you create!
I am using Flourishes Damask background, Thank You, and Gerber Daisies stamp sets!  I alterd the background panel of one of the Webster's Pages dp.  I used Spellbinder's scallop square for center square panel.  I layered it with another Webster Page's dp.   I only sponged it with some scattered straw ranger ink.  I added silver  pearls, a satin ribbon bow, some flourished gem accenting and my sentiment. For my sentiment, I used Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  I used the Spellbinders Label 10 die cut for my sentiment framing. 

This card is also for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC264)!   Today, we are using Bermuda Gray Saffrons with crushed colorful flowers for dessert option!  The crushed, layered, punched, distressed flower, or vintage flower inspiration came from Betsy Veldman and Mercy Kerin's blog tutorials.  I sort of mimic the looks...sort of morph them a bit.    I am still practicing! 

Please check out the other blog team designers did which inspiration picture they chose and what they created with the inspiration!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Comments are greatly appreciated and I do try to return all that I receive!
