Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #175

Hi ya, all! Here is my card for this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge.


This week's hostess is Silke and the challenge theme is "Favorites." Use your favorite Spellbinders dies with your favorite Flourishes stamp set and add your favorite embellishments. Easy peasy! =)


I used the gorgeous Magnolias set for my card. Sigh... I adore these beauties! The image is stamped on Rustic White cardstock with Angel Pink Momento ink, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. The piece is inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks while the paper was still in the die.


Ovals are some of the most used Spellbinders dies in my stash and the new Floral Ovals die set has quickly become one of my favorites, too. I also love using ribbons/seam binding, buttons and pearls on my cards. The patterned paper is from London Market 6x6 Collage Paper Pack by Pink Paislee and the sentiment comes with the Magnolias set.

Here are the Copics that I used for this card.





That's all I have. Don't forget to visit all the Timeless Tuseday designers and see what they created for this challenge.
You can find all the challenge details at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #175.

This is also my last card as a guest designer. Once again, thank you for inviting me, Beate! I had such fun creating with the amazing stamps from Flourishes and it was an honor to work with this talented group of ladies! I will always be a fan and will continue to play along with the challenges as often as I can. Hope you can join us, too! =)



Have beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
