Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

If you're here for the Blog Hop please go down one post -thank you!!!

Well it's another day and another fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!

Today is Betty's turn to host the FTTC33 and she wants us to *Mix it Up*!!! We are using stamps, dp, textures, or a combination of all three to mix different patterns. You can blend subtle patterns for a conservative look or go all out with bold and daring patterns for an extreme look. The choice is yours!!! We would love to see what you create!!!

Well, I must admit I'm *Design Paper challenged* - LOL!!! I love DP and own lots of it, but when it comes to adding them together...oh my I'm in trouble - LOL!!!

With that said....I tried really hard to come up with a card....and the wonderful WSC97 Sketch helped me along the way.......



















I couldn't help myself but to use the gorgeous new Seasonal Wreaths Set that was released this past Friday!!! Just in case you missed the Flourishes release....check out the post right here !!!

The two different Design Papers are from the Christmas Cocoa and Bella Rose Collection.

To dress my card up I added the small Silver Pearls, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Styled Silver Hardware and Royal Red Shimmerz. Plus I added some Faux Stitching around the edges.

So what do you think..should I add some more DP on my future cards :)???

Make sure to swing by Betty, Cindy and Dee's blog to see their cards close up too!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!
