Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!!!

Are you ready for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday???

The wonderful and super talented Dee Jackson is the hostess this week. She is challenging us to *GO GREEN*!!! What does that mean? Well, it means that you have to find something to redo, to reuse, so we can say we recycled!!! I know you have many items that were created that did not quite make it on a card and you stashed it away for another time. Also, there are all kinds of non-craft items in the home waiting to be reused for something crafty. So, the time is now!!!! Let us go green and recycle those items!!!!


For my card today I used some left over Certainly Celery CS - I tore it and added some Candle Light Shimmerz onto the torn edge. The top part was distressed and I also added some Shimmerz.

The ribbon is actually from a birthday party my daughter Rebecca went to two weekends ago. The girls were given some *thank you* cookies all wrapped up and tied with this super cute bright ribbon - I took it off the wrap and held on to it!!! As you can tell it came in handy for today's Challenge :)!!!

To my pleasant surprise it matches the PTI Raspberry Fizz color perfectly - wahooo!!! The button is from the new PTI Hibiscus color - perfectly match as well!!!

The roses are from the fabulous Flourishes *I love Roses* Set!!! I inked them twice in Raspberry Fizz and cut them out. The first rose was water colored with the same color and then I added some Candle Light Shimmerz. On the second rose I only added Shimmerz. The leaves were inked in Certainly Celery and softly water colored with the same color. I also added some Shimmerz to the leaves. Each of the roses were raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

At the end I inked the sentiment from the Flourishes *Mixed Greetings* Set with Basic Black and added some piercing on the top of the card.

Now it's your turn to get your left overs, put set a side items out or just finish up a project you've been holding off - can't wait to see what you will do?!? Make sure you'll stop by the Flourishes Newsletter to see all the Samples as well as all the other information to play along!!!

Please use the keyword *FTTC9* when you download your card to SCS!!!

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!!!
