Just the ticket - FTTC #83

It's time for Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC83)! This week Betty Wright is our host. Betty is challenging us to use tickets on our cards. Now, you can use actual store bought tickets or create your own, or come up with ways to create a ticket look with your focal image, card base, or sentiment. We would love to see what you create!

OK, I went with create my own. I'm using the recently released Fine Herbs set for my card. I love the sentiments in this set--just perfect for a focus on sentiments. First, I stamped the rosemary image on Classic Ivory card stock and wrapped black ribbon around. Then I stamped the sentiment and added the little greenery image under it. Next I cut it out with a Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die, used my ticket corner punch on the corners, and then made the little perforations with my 1/16th" hole punch. Finally, I matted it with Always Artichoke card stock, added some black flat-backed pearls, and popped it up. Very simple design but I'm liking it.

Be sure to go see what ticket designs my team mates have today! I hope you'll play along with us! Did you know there are two other challenges currently going on at the Flourishes blog? A monthly one, called Bring Back Beautiful and Flourishes Look Who's 3 birthday celebration challenge. Check 'em out!
