Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday #231

Welcome back for another Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge!  This week's hostess is the amazingly creative Allison and the theme is "Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue" (FTTC231)!


You can read all of the details here,  but you must incorporate something old from your stash, your newest stamp set, a "borrowed" card design from the Flourishes Gallery, and something blue...how fun! The card does not have to be a wedding card though.

My card actually could be used for a wedding or any other "Big" day...like a birthday, etc.  I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to Flourishes Classic White card stock then colored it with Copics and fussy cut it out and attached it to my Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die Set  frame with Collall.

My "borrowed" card design is loosely based on this beautiful card from Cindy  Lawrence.  I loved the use of the pierced frame die.  My "new" is the stamp set Dahlias.  My "old" is the pearl flourish that I have had squirreled away for quite some time now and I think it fits perfectly here. And I think you can see my "blue" in the papers and sponged on my frame die.  I just love this stamp set, the sentiment fonts are so fun and are very versatile.  As you can also see, I am still on a gold leafing kick so this one got the "royal treatement" too.  The detail on this stamp is so incredible... 

I hope you will be able to play along with us this week...remember, you could win a prize and the odds go up if you use Flourishes stamps!  Before you get to work on your creation, you should check out all of the beautiful inspiration from my team mates....and make sure you leave them a little blog love while you are there!  I hope you have a wonderful day and I am so glad you could stop by for a bit!  Take care!
