Flourishes Opposites Attract Challenge

Who doesn't like a little challenge in their scrapbooking every once in a while? I know I do! 
This week Maki is offering up a pretty crazy challenge this week in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Opposites Attract! Use the stamp stamp set and make two different cards with two totally different looks, styles, colors, ect..!
If you play along, you could win a GC from Flourishes to use in their store ( In know I want that!!). You can find out more details HERE on their blog post.

I chose to make the same exact card and use different colors to make them different from each other.

I used a Cheery Lynn "Dutch Scallop Frame" die as my base for both cards, which I over laid with a Spellbinders "Lacy Square" die that I cut the middle out of. I added an embossed matting inside for both cards using Sizzix "Christmas Set #6" - One done in Flourishes "Classic White Cardstock" and the other one in Bazzil "Dark Crabapple" cardstock. I used a Tim Holtz "Paper Rosette" die to make my paper rosettes in Flourishes Classic White paper. I placed a Spellbinder "Scalloped Circle" diecut over the rosette one in white and the other in "Dark Crabapple" CS. For the main image I used Flourishes "Calendar Set 3: September through December" I colored in with Tombows, and cut them out and popped them up on popdots. I added pearls for my finishing touch, and a vellum banner.

I am knee deep in Christmas cards I am trying to get done and I had a few extra images that I had colored in just in case, so I used them ;) 
I bought the Sizzix Embossing plate and Tim Holtz Rosette die (along with his Mini Rosette), last Saturday at the crazy Sizzix sale at my LSS, and I had been going crazy wanting to try them out! I am so in love with them and I feel better now that I've "broke them in" :)
