Timeless Tuesday Anniversary Challenge -- My Favorite Flourishes Stamp Set...


This challenge, the last of the night is thanks to Miss
Maki Jones. Her challenge was to use one of our favorite Flourishes sets. That's a hard one...I don't mean hard to stamp but rather hard to choose! I find all of the Flourishes sets are very high class and make up into beautiful cards.


I'm one of Maki's sample makers, so be sure to head on over to
THIS post to read up on her challenge and how to play!




I picked out Flourishes Sweet Pea set. I think they are so delicate and sweet as the name implies. I used my water colored pencils and just stamped and colored and used my Nestie's label # 3 for my mat. I love pink cards so I chose some sweet polka dotted pink sparkly paper from Mike's and some Bazzil pinkini card stock. My ribbon ( also from Mike's...I know I'm such a traitor) is an iridescent white pearlized ...did I use the word pearl..I did so I will put pearls in each corner to finish off my blingers. My phrase comes once again from Taglines set. And there you have it good people.

Once again it's a Happy Birthday to Timeless Tuesday! Check out THIS post for all the fun, games and chances to win free stamps! Hip hip hurrah!

Hey, Rubbermaid! Bozeman's Sweet Pea Festival needs this as a tee shirt motif 2010 entry! Simply delicately delicious and easily transferred onto a screen printer's field, your coloration is simply elegant.
