Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial weekend???

I have two posts today...for my MTME creation please scroll down to the next post or click HERE.

We have an easy Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC69 for you today! Barbara is our host and she is challenging us to a *ONE LAYER CARD*!!! Hope you get inspired and play along with us!?! Make sure to read the whole post you never know what's waiting for you at the end :) !!!

Here is my idea.....


Jerry and I are celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow. My sweet hubby is taking me out to a movie and dinner...yummy!!! Getting to spend a few hours without the girls is wonderful!!!

I used the image from the I Love Roses Set onto Kraft CS using Memento Black Ink. I colored the rose with Copic Markers - R27, R29, G12, G24 and Colorless Blender. The sentiment is from the Tag Lines Set. I finished the card off with some Black Kaiser Pearls, some Black/White Gingham Ribbon with a White Button on top. At last I ink distressed the edges with Vintage Cream and added some piercing on top.

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's Blog from more gorgeous CAS ideas!!! Also, a Flourishes Cherry Blossom Set is up for grabs this week!!!  In order to win it, you need to stop by each DT Member and and leave a comment!!! The winner will be announced next week!!!

Have a wonderful week!!!

First, thank you for the chance to win the set that really is my favorite Flourishes set right now, I'm really wanting to own it in the worst way! I know that whoever wins it will appreciate it ALMOST as much as I would--I'm only kidding of course. I'll be thrilled for whoever wins it, and it's generous to be offered as a great gift to a blessed stamper who wins it.

I love your beautiful rose in this card! Who needs layers when you have such a great stamp that you've colored in and shaded so masterfully. I think that making a one-layer card requires great talent and skill, and it's obvious that the members of the design team at Flourishes possess this great artistic talent in spades. Congratulating the winner of this set, and to Flourishes for choosing to produce such beautifully detailed and gorgeous stamps, for no one can even touch their quality. You are the best, Flourishes! Just wish I could order more often, living in Canada makes that more expensive and difficult. I know your stamps are now sold in Canada which is great (although more expensive too), but we can't get your other great merchandise like your great finishing touches embellishment (they're remarkable!), your truly wonderful cardstock, and you fantastic ribbon. Hoping that your partnering store will be able to carry a lot more of your merchandise!

You've made your products completely irresistible! You're my favorite store for stamping supplies, and now you've spoiled me and I don't want to shop elsewhere. Thank you especially for creating the most beautiful set I've ever seen--this Cherry Blossom set. Congratulations for making such an amazing card, and to Flourishes for again making yet another wonderful set that I feel I can't possibly live without having it whenever I place my next order! :)
