Timeless Tuesday Challenge ...Flowers


Well today's challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday is to use flowers. I chose the parrot tulip (not the polly want a cracker kind but the one) from the Thank you set by Flourishes. What an easy image to use as it speaks to you and I don't mean like a parrot but instead like a beautiful sound of spring. I used navy blue cardstock along with Denium colored ink and did a bit of layering and added a bit of bling. The phrase is part of a new set from Stampin Up and boy what a wonderful piece of advise to follow...you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. I hope you all heed that advise and seize the day each and every day. So, go out there and have a great time today by putting a smile on your face and on the face of everyone you meet, in other words...have a wonderful day!

Classy card and fabulous advice. Like how you put a bit of the tulip on the edge of the sentiment.
Hope you're dry down there ~ we're getting a very rain-like s-n-o-w.
