Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC67

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It's time again for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC67!!! Betty is our host and she is challenging us to use any kind of *CHIPBOARD* to your card/project!!! You can use some already decorated chipboard or find some "bare" chipboard and dress it up! You can make tags, embellishments, or stamp your focal image directly to the stuff! Whether you are painting it up, cutting it out, or using some already pre-cut and decorated chipboard, we would love to see what you create using chipboard!!!

Here is my idea.....





I went thru my stash of old chipboards that I have hoarded for years and found these two Large Tag Chipboards. My idea for this bag and card combo came from this weeks CAS67 ~ Shabby Chic.

I added some Very Vanilla CS and stamped the super gorgeous new Cherry Blossom image on it. The edges of the VV CS were distressed plus ink distressed. The tags were finished off with some Green Checker Ribbon, Pink Buttons, some Brown Scrap Floss plus some Black Pearls.

Did you all see the gorgeous new Flourishes Release this past week??? It was definitely WOW...I loved all the sneak peek cards the Senior Design Team has created!!! Since I haven't had a *BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY* in a while I figured I surprise you and let one winner chose one of the new Release Sets!!!
All you have to do is leave me a comment!!! I'll pick a winner this coming Friday, May 21 about
8:00 PM EST!!!

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog for more chipboard gorgeousness!!!

What??? Did I hear you right Silke??? You mean we could actually win one of the new Flourishes sets? Oh what I would give for this Cherry Blossom set...Now tell me, can I cheat and comment with 50 different names...that would give me a heads up on all the others...but then again, I would feel guilty because I just received that wonderful gift set from you...Plus you introduced me to a new store and I ordered "bunches" from them...when she called to ask a question, I told her that I found her store through you...she knew exactly who I was talking about...anyhoo...I get a little excited when I think I have the chance of winning and so a Gospel I write...sry...Congrats to the Happy Winner...I still hope it is me :)
