Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday #246

Hi there everybody and welcome back for another Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday Challenge!  This week, our fabulous hostess Allison has provided us with a couple of wonderful sketches...all you do is pick your favorite and create your project (FTTC246)!  You've gotta love a good sketch for getting those creative juices flowing...you can see all of the details here.

Both sketches were awesome but I decided to use the first one.  I stayed pretty true to the design with one small change....I only used two buttons on the sentiment banner and put the third in the upper right corner of my image.  Speaking of image, this adorable cuppa is from the Sweets of the Season stamp set.  I thought that little mug would fit perfectly in the image space.

I colored up my image to coordinate with these sweet prints from  Echo Park's Christmas This and That 6x6 pad and some papers from the Color Made Easy Pistachio and Color Made Easy Poppy collections.  I also added a little pom pom trim that I have been saving for just the right card and did some stitching on the machine for the borders.  The background is a Spellbinders M Bossabilites in Garden Lattice.  

Well, that is about it for my card this week.  I had so much fun with this challenge and I know that you will too!  Why don't you start by checking out what all of my teammates have created for your inspiration, leave them a little blog love and then get to work on your creation.  Make sure you link up on our site to have a chance to win a prize!  I am so glad you stopped by and I hope you have a great week!  Until next time, take care!  :)
