FTTC16 Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! Hope you had a great weekend???

Today is my turn to host the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday again - wahoooo!!! It's an easy one....if you follow my blog regularly you know I have a passion for square cards so my challenge for you is to create a card or project that is *SQUARE*!!!

Okay you all - I will personally visit your blog or SCS gallery!!! So play along and put a big smile on my face :) - remember if you own a Flourishes Set - flaunt it!!! If not, you are still invited to play along!!!

Please visit the Flourishes Blog for all the Samples and see what's one sale!!!

I couldn't resist showing off the brand spankin' new *DIY Topiaries* that was just release last Friday!!! Check out the Flourishes SCS Gallery and see what the DT has created with this awesome new Set!!!

My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Before I started I decided to do a *Grid* Background. I scored my White CS in a 1/4" interval.

Next I inked the image Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers - R27, G07 and E47.

Once I was done coloring I added some Royal Red Shimmerz to the roses.

The sentiment is also from a Flourishes Set - Many Sentiments. I inked it Memento Black and punched it out with the SU Key Tag Punch. Each panel on my card was raised with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I used some Silver Jumbo Eyelets, Red Rhinestone Brads plus a Red Satin Ribbon to dress up the card!!!

Hope you like it??? Looking forward seeing what you have created!!!

Make sure to stop by Betty, Cindy and Kimberly's blog to see their take is on my Challenge!!!
