Timeless Tuesday!

Are you ready? We sure are!!! We are launching the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!! We are taking you on a weekly journey that we are sure will become not only one of your favorites but also timeless!!!! We, the Friends of Flourishes, will be bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. Everyone can PLAY and anyone can WIN!!!! Make sure you continue reading to find out how.

This week Cindy Haffner is hosting our first ever Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. And, to kick off this challenge in a Flourishes way she wants us all to use flourishes and swirls of any kind on our cards. So, if it has a flourish or a swirl it will work.
Let's go see what the Blog Team did with this challenge to give you some ideas to get started.

You got a sneak peak at this beauty last week. Cindy Haffner's card uses the new release set called Chairs. Great colors and coloring! Love her touches of bling on her swirls! Love that detailed edge border, too!

Next, we skip over to Dee Jackson's where everything is coming up roses. Dee uses the Flourishes I Love Roses set to create this beauty. Great colors and the roses are stunning. Check out her smaller rose. Love how she did that. Dee's entire flourish is bling! Love it!

We take a moment to flutter over to Kimberly Crawford's where she uses the Butterfly Moments set to create this lovely card. Love her bold swirl and dimensional butterfly. It goes so beautifully with the Basic Gray dp found in the Flourishes store. Wonderfully done, Kim!!!!

We are jaunting along on our flourish and swirl Timeless Tuesday journey. Next stop, Silke Ledlow's! She uses the Spring Ephemerals set. I love the contrast of colors and bold look of the silhouette flower. From the soft hue of blue and created white cuttlebug swirls texture, this card is just so striking!

Becca Feeken WOWS us with this beauty! She uses the Thinking of You set. Do you see that stamp created background? Love all those luscious pearl details. See the touch of pearl on the swirl. Beautifully done!

Last on our Timeless Tuesday blog journey is Betty Wright. Can you feeling the LOVE?!! I have hearts and Valentine's Day on my mind. Here I used the Flourishes Lace Heart set with both flourishes and swirls. I, too, created my background dp by stamping the Lace Heart several times. I just love this heart!!!!

Check out the links to all of our blogs to get card specifics!!! As always thanks so much for stopping by.

Now, it is your turn!!!! Here are the Rules!!!!
  • Anyone can play whether you have Flourishes stamps or not. Of course, if you have Flourishes stamps, by all means, use them.
  • Use code word FTTC1 when linking to SCS or public gallery.
