Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy day!!!

Today I'm officially starting my day in the workforce!!! I'm soooooo excited!!! Hope it goes well?!?

While I'm away...check out the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC83!!! This week Betty is our host and she is challenging us to use *TICKETS* on our cards. You can use actual store bought tickets or create your own, or come up with ways to create a ticket look with your focal image, card base, or sentiment. We would love to see what you create!!!!

My card is also for the Flourishes Birthday Bash that is still going on....you can read all about it right here!!! Happy Birthday Flourishes!!! I'm so blessed to be part of this amazing company!!!  

Here is my take on it...........



I ran with the ticket look as my focal point :) !!! The sentiment speaks volume and it is so fitting for the birthday bash. Flourishes adds so much love to there stamps and I think it shows everytime when I see a new Set!!!  The sentiment is from the Flip Exclusive Set ~ Fuchsia in Bloom. The layout is from the OCCSC31 Sketch. My BG Paper is from the SU Welcome Neighbor Collection. I added a panel of Pear Parfait, a small paper dollie and two more Spellbinder Circles.  My sentiment panels were punched out with the SU Ticket Corner Punch. At last I added the Cotton Laced Ribbon, the Silver Pearls and the Prima Flowers.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki!!!

I also made this card with these challenges in mind:

The Shabby Tea Room #26 ~ Tag you are it
Stamp & Create #5 ~ Add Pearls and Gems
Crafty Den Anything Goes Challenge ~ Say it with flowers
Pile it On ~ Pile on the Layers (I made 7 layers...can you believe it..???)
Fab'n Funky Challenge #38 ~ Living in a Material World

Thank you for stopping by today...we hope you have time to play along!!! Hugs ~S~
