Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

Happy Tuesday! It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC120)!  Cindy is the challenge host this week.  Cindy is challenging us to a color combo.  We are using cranberry, caramel, dark gray or brown.  These are wonderful colors with lots of possibilities.  We would love to see what you create!  

For my card I am using Flourishes Thank You and Country Charm Labels sets.  Flourishes Thank You set is one of my first Flourishes sets and is still one of my favorites.  I just love this tulip image and the script stamp background.  I am using Flourishes Classic ivory cardstock.  I colored my image with Flourishes Copic Color Collections.  I stenciled inside the oval die with Ranger antique linen.  I used one of the pennant strips from Nested Lacey Pennants for the sentiment tag.  I am using the sketch from Your Next Stamp Challenge!

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created!
