Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC33)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC33)!!! Thanks so much to all of you who played along with us with the sketch challenge last week. Keep reading to find out who won!
Do not forget to use Mr. Linky when you play!!!

The Friends of Flourishes blog design team are bringing you exciting and different challenges each week. Flourishes gives away a store gift certificate each week and everyone can PLAY and anyone can WIN! Make sure you continue reading to find out how.

This week Betty Wright is our challenge host. I am challenging everyone to Mix It Up!!! You can use stamps, dp, textures, or a combination of all three to mix different patterns. You can blend subtle patterns for a conservative look or go all out with bold and daring patterns for an extreme look. The choice is yours!!! We would love to see what you create!!!

Let's go see what the blog design team created with the Mix It Up challenge this week!

Up first this week is Betty Wright. For the Mix It Up challenge, I wanted to mix flower images for patterns. I am using Flourishes Sweet Pea, Gerbera Daisies, Nasturtiums, and Sweet Voilets stamp sets. I stamped all of my flower images using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I am using Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock and Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Water, Sky, Daffodil, Violets, Tiger Lily, Poppy, Dusty Rose, Hollyhock, Evergreen, and Cool Neutrals. I added my sentiment and a polka dotted bow to complete my card.

Up second this week is, Cindy Haffner. Cindy is using the Forest of Trees and Holiday Greetings sets. For the challenge, Cindy combined dotted designer papers, circle diecuts, and polka dotted ribbon. The circle theme offers a beautiful pattern to enhance the tree scape Cindy created. The soft multi-stamped trees in different hues of soft blues, tans, and browns really make for a beautifully serene Christmas card. Wonderfully done, Cindy!

Next up this week is Dee Jackson. Dee is using the Gerbera Daisies set. For the challenge, Dee is mixing up a small tonal print flower and a more bold colorful printed pattern paper in the background. She is using Spellbinders Label Two as the focal panel. Dee is using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Spring Greens and Poppy. I love how she cut out the small bouqet and placed it onto the label two shape with the sentiment. Dee finished her card with some sheer ribbon and silver cording. Lovely card, Dee!

Next on the list is Kimberly Crawford. Kimberly is using the newly released set Think Pink- Fight Like a Girl! and Beach Life sets. Kimberly is mixing a bold striped mulitcolored pattern paper with a stamped panel of palm trees. The bold colors and patterns set off the Flourishes classic white cardstock focal panel with the one outlined pink flamigo and I wear pink sentiment!!! This set is one of four new releases this month still available for a bundle discount until the 17th. Check here for details. Kim finished her card with scalloped lush velveteen ribbon and colored natural twine.

Up last this week is Silke Ledlow . Silke is using another of the newly released sets this month called Seasonal Wreaths. For the challenge, Silke is mixing up a rough faux texture dp with a more elegant damask print. Silke is using the Flourishes Classic White cardstock to stamp and color her image. She is using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Poppy, Fields, and Flesh Tones. I love how Silke cute out the cute little bow that comes in this set and popped it up at the base of the wreath. Please remember to check here to see how you can get this set as a bundle for a discount until the 17th!!! Beautiful card, Silke!!!
