Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC103), SCS CC308 and MORE!

It is time for Flourishes FTTC103 Challenge! This week Silke Ledlow is the host. Silke is challenging us to make a Valentine's card! Easy enough, right? We would love to see what you create!

I thought it would be easy enough, but I needed to combine this challenge with SCS Color Combo Challenge CC308! Not a bit of red or pink in the bunch! So I was on a mission to feel the love with some white, basic gray, and river rock!

I hope I did it!  I am using Flourishes Thinking of You, Vintage Wallpaper background, and  I love Roses(sentiment) stamp sets. I stamped the vintage wallpaper background in smokey shadow.  I sponged some camomille ink to vintage it up a bit.  I used some SU striped patterned paper that I also sponged a bit.  I paper pieced the edges and added the focal arrangement with sentiment.  Finished with some seam binding and gold pearls.

Make sure you check out the other blog team designers to see their Valentine creations!
