Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm a total Flourishes fan. And if you knew that about me, you would know it's time for my favorite day of the week: Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!! ;) 

This week Cindy Haffner is challenging us to use: Sentiments. You can find out all of the details plus details about the Crazy4Challenges contest that Flourishes is also doing, here at the Flourishes Blog!

I used Flourishes "Lenten Rose" for my flowers, stamped in Brilliance "Moonlight White" and a Flourishes sentiment from "Sweet Violets" stamped in Versafine "Onyx Black". The images are colored in with Tombows and cut out with a craft knife, then popped up with popdots. I layered two of the Spellbinders Fancy Tags #3 under the sentiment in Bazzil Basics "French Vanilla" and a co-ordinating piece of blue cardstock from an old My Mind's Eye line. I used a cheery yellow gingham checked paper from The Girls Paperie, that I stitched along the edges of. I added a detailed diecut border at the bottom, from the backside of the gingham paper using a Lacy Die from My Favorite Things. The pearls are from KaiserKraft, the brads and ribbon are from Making Memories.
I used the following Tombows: 020, 025, 991, 947, 761, 847

I was so happy with the last card I made that I embossed in white I wanted to try it again, and I noticed that Maki Jones, from Flourishes DT, also used white :) I love, the look, like you don't notice the lines and that the coloring takes center stage. I was also inspired by all the bright and bold colors everyone is working with, so I pulled every bright piece of paper I had and had fun with it :) Next time I'm in a scrap shop, I am promising myself that I will ONLY buy Cheery colors.
I am also combining my TT Challenge with Flourishes Crazy 4 Challenges Contest. 

I picked : Brads, Flowers & 2 or More Designer Papers (I'm counting the DP in my Diecut border).
Whew! Now I need to go pick up my daughter from school :)
