Timeless Tuesday #204

Good morning Flourishes Friends! Welcome back to another one of our great weekly challenges! This week, Cindy, our hostess, is challenging us to create a card with: 4 Brads/Pearls, a Circle, and a Fishtail Flag!

I love this card recipe idea! I was really inspired to go many directions, but in the end I decided to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) a card from Meredith MacRitchie. Meredith is from the Bring Back Beautiful design team, one of our sister teams here, in Flourishes. HERE is a link to her card with inspired me (it's the 4th picture down), and if you have a minute, take a look around her blog, she is truly creative!

Here is what I created, being inspired from Meredith's card.

I used Flourishes new "Just My Type" that I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Flourishes Classic Ivory CS, then I stamped some brackets on top and under the Just My Type sentiments from Flourishes "Sweet Violets". I used Teresa Collins "Now and Then" 6x6 stack that I distressed and matted with Rich Brown Color Made Easy CS. I cut a circle out of it using a scalloped circle die, and layered my sentiment and a paper doily over it. I used Color Made Easy's "Argentina" brown ribbon, Laurel Venise Champagne lace, Kraft Jute, Poppy Button, Crystal Trinket PinsVintage Kraft Fishtail Flag pin that I stamped Flourishes "Tiny Flowers & Tags" on it and added pearls as a finishing touch.

Please visit the rest of the Timeless Tuesday Team for more inspiration!
