Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC #37)

I am really getting into participating in all different challenges. It’s forcing me to get my projects done. Not hat I don’t want to do them, it’s just hard finding the time. So, if I’m doing a challenge, at least I have a deadline. This week the Flourishes team offered 4 sketches to choose from. Actually, it’s one sketch that they rotated, so you could choose your positioning.

I needed to make Thank You cards from Rhiannon’s Blessing, so I used this sketch. And, amazingly, I got all of them made in one evening!

As much as I love circles, I wanted to do something with a little more pizzazz. Do you recognize this shape? It’s the outline of the Petal Point inks from Color Box! I cut around the container with my Coluzzle blade and mat and voila! I was really please with how perfectly my stamped image’s flowers matched the patterned paper I used. I inked the edges of almost everything to add a little “more” to this simple but nice design.

I added some Stickles and that’s about it. I think it’s sweet, which isn’t exactly the way I’d describe my style! But since they’re Thank You cards, I think they are just right! Now… I just have to write out all of the inside messages!
