Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and MTSC45 Sketch

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Oh my goodness I can't hardly believe the month of October is almost over...how could this be??? I guess when you have fun...time does fly by fast - LOL?!?

Anyway - today I have to cards for you :)

The first one is for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC39. We are welcoming the fabulous Kathy Jones aka *Wattle* on SCS as our Guest Stamper. Kathy is also our challenge host....she is challenging us to use *Border Punches or Borderabilities*.

You decide if you want to use just one border, different patterns, or layer several for a fanciful look. Whatever you decide, we would love to see what you create!!! Have fun with this one....the sky the limit!!!

Here is my take on it.....





















I used the beautiful Seasonal Wreaths Set. The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copic Markers. For the borders I used the EK-Success Fleur de Lis Punch.

For my colors I chose Chocolate Chip and Summer Sunrise. I really like this color combo - who about you!?!?!

I finished the card off with some Glitter, Gold Pearls, Satin Ribbon and a matching Button.

Hope you like it?!?

Please make sure to stop by Kathy, Betty, Cindy, Dee, Kimberly and Makiko's Blog for their take on the challenge!!!

********************************************

My next card is for the MTSC45.

Mercy has done it again....she has created another fabulous Sketch for us to try. Sadly....this is my last *official* October Muse post - sniff....!!!! I had so much fun playing along with these fabulous ladies!!! Thank you Mercy for allowing me to be your October Muse!!! I'm already looking forward to the next Sketches!!!

So here is today's Sketch......

And here is my take on it.....















I used the *Flores Suaves* Set from Stampin' Up. I inked the images in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored the butterfly with Copic Markers. For the border I used once again the EK Success Fleur de Lis Punch.

Please make sure to check out Mercy's blog and her fabulous Muses - Pam Speidel, Cindy Haffner, Pam Varnell, Julie Lacey, Crystal Birr, Jessica Diedrich.

Hope you like it and find the time to play along with us???
