Timeless Tuesday!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!! Thanks so much to all of you who played along with us last week. It was so fun checking out all the cards. Keep reading to find out the winner from last week's challenge.

The Friends of Flourishes blog team are 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 Dee Jackson is hosting the Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Flowers, flowers everywhere!!! Whether they are stamped, silk, real, paper, felt, fabric, dried, crocheted, or clear, if it looks like a flower it is a flower!!! So, this week your challenge is to use flowers!!!!

Come along with me and let us go see what the blop team created using flowers!!!!

First up is Dee Jackson. Dee has created a flower garden of daffodils and poppies. She is using the Flourishes newly released Signs of Spring set and combined it with the ever popular Poppy Patch set. Love the arrangement Dee created and her coloring is wonderful. These sets compliment each other beautifully. Each flower has been cut out and popped up to create dimension. Great look and effect!!!!!

Take a look at this wonderful card Silke Ledlow has a created. She uses the Flourishes newly released Signs of Spring set as well. This set is so versatile. I just love her beautifully colored basket of flowers and how she cut out the little chicks and popped them up to create dimension. Love the two flower primas with button detailing at the top. Wonderful card!!!

Becca Feeken is also using the newly released Signs of Spring set. She is showcasing a flower within a flower for her challenge card. The lily from the set is at the heart of the sunflower diecut stems. The colors and coloring are fabulous. Love the flower tole technique used with this flower, too. It creates beautiful dimension. The punched border frames the card so beautifully, too.

Next is Betty Wright. I am using the Flourishes newly released Signs of Spring set on my card, too. I focused on only ONE flower. I decided to watercolor this beautiful flower. Love the size of this flower. It can definitely be a true stand alone. I used some black satin ribbon and Basic Gray Urban Prairie dp and brads found at the Flourishes store to finish my card.

Last up, is Cindy Haffner's . Her card uses the Birds and Vine set. I just love this bold color combo and the way Cindy spotlighted two of the birds is just stunning. Look at those tiny white punched out little dots she used to emphasize the flowers on the vine. I love the fan layout with sentiment tag. Great prima flower detailing, too. Beautiful card!!!!

Make sure to check out each blog team members links to get more card specifics. As always thanks so much for stopping by.
