Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC55)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC55)! Thanks so much for playing along with us last week in the "All About Me" challenge! 

It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host! This month's guest host is Iwona Palamountain (Chupa). Iwona comes all the way from Australia with her challenge! Thanks so much for being a challenge host for us this month, Iwona!  Iwona is challenging us to use flowers! Whether they are printed flower designer papers, stamped, punch created, or store bought, put some flowers on your card this week! We would love to see what you create!

Let's go see what Iwona created using flowers!

Iwona is using A Year of Flowers 2 stamp set.   Iwona is a landscape artist and loves all kinds of flowers.  She thinks it would be impossible to pick one favorite flower.   However, for her card she did need to narrow down the choices.  She chose the Morning Glory because it is one of  her many favorites.   With today's challenge to use flowers, Flourishes definitely offers many gorgeous floral images to choose from.    Iwona watercolored the Morning Glories.  She added  Inkssentials White gel for highlighting.  She stamped her image on a textured paper that makes the image look like it was colored on canvas.  I love that effect!    Iwona added some sewing to the edges and added touches of  lavendar pearls to the center of the flowers.  She finished her gorgeous card with a lush burgandy satin bow!  Beautifully done, Iwona!  Please check out Iwona's blog for more card details!

Check out the other FOF blog team designers to see which flowers they used for the flower challenge!

Beautiful card Iwona and this was a perfect idea for my card today. I made this yesterday for my sister to use as a thank you card.

Love what you did with the morning glories. It was not one of my favorite in the calendar sets but now you have inspired me to do another card with it.

Very fun challenge, I don't do flowers unless I have to, but I really love the results.
