Timeless Tuesday Be Fruitful


Good Morning! This weeks Timeless Tuesday hostess is Mona, and she is challenging us to create a card with Fruit. 
I am so excited to pull out a stamp set close to my heart. I am using Flourishes "Strawberries" set. This set was in my very first order I placed to Flourishes, so it is one of my most treasured sets!



I used Flourishes "Strawberries" set with Flourishes "Classic White" cardstock and some patterned  papers. I added Zva "Taupe" Pearl Swirls and a big bow, using May Arts "White" silk ribbon with a butterfly charm. 

I love the Flourishes cardstock, it is perfect for using Copic markers on it, and getting a clear impression when you stamp. It is a luxurious European cardstock and it is a beautiful heavy weight that comes in two beautiful and crisp colors: "Classic White" and "Ivory". They are so nice I even use it for layering and on my card bases, as I did on this card, I love them so much!


Please visit the rest of the team to gather more Flourishes inspirations.
