Happy New Year! Hope you all enjoyed your little challenge break and are ready for a new year of fabulous Timeless Tuesday Challenges. The blog team is looking forward to having you play along with us each week. It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC48)! Thanks so much to you all for playing along in with the ATC challenge! Keep reading to find out who won! Plus, we have December's monthly winner, too!

The Friends of Flourishes blog design 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. Each week Flourishes gives away a store gift certificate for $10 to the lucky random draw participant. In addition to this, Flourishes also gives away a monthly gift certificate for $10 to one lucky monthly challenge winner. So, if you did not complete any challenge during the month, you still have a chance to win. Just link your card with Mr. Linky!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC48)! This week Maki Jones is our challenge host. Maki is challenging us to a color challenge. Maki is giving us two colors and we have to choose another one. Sort of like a 2+1 color combo. Maki is celebrating her Asian heritage and the black and yellow color choices because it is the year of the Tiger! The colors are black and yellow plus another color of your choice! Have fun playing along with us. We look forward to seeing what you create!

Let's see what Maki Jones designed for us this week with the color challenge! Maki is using black and yellow along with a deep rich avocado green shade. She is using Signs of Spring stamp set. She is using Flourishes European watercolor paper. She layered the Spellbinders label die cut. Maki watercolored her beautiful daffodil flowers and added beautiful soft buttery background shading. Maki combined border punch accenting along with subtle patterns to create one beautiful card. She finished her card with some gingham ribbon, gold cording, and rhinestone detailing. Beautifully done, Maki!

On a white snowy day this colour challenge was such fun - and a reminder of what Spring will bring; thanks, Maki.
