It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC55)! It's the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host! This month's guest is Iwona Palamountain (Chupa). Iwona lives in Australia! She is challenging us to use flowers! Whether they are printed flower designer papers, stamped, punch created, or store bought, put some flowers on your card this week! We would love to see what you create!
BTW, Flourishes is unveiling a new store front! It just went live yesterday, so there may still be a few kinks to work out, but hop on over and look at it--it's gorgeous!!!
For today's card, I'm using one of Flourishes' newest sets, From the Garden. I love to dig in the dirt, so this set just speaks to me--I love it! I stamped my geranium image and the pot image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers. After they were done, I masked the pot and stamped those adorable little sprigs of grass on either side. They add so much--giving definition without having to add another layer. Love 'em! Then I cut the image out with a Labels Five Nestabilities die and layered it on a Classic Oval. Some pretty paper, some paper piercing, and a moire' ribbon bow finishes it off.
Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to check out the rest of the Friends of Flourishes Blog team--I know they have some gorgeous flowers to show you!
