Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC50)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC50)! Thanks so much to you all for playing along with the sketch challenge last week! Keep reading to find out who won! Also, keep reading to find out about some exciting FTTC News!

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!

This week Betty Wright is our host. I am challenging you all to create a scene with stamps. Flourishes has a lot of scene stamps to choose from, such as beach scenes, garden scenes, patio, to party scenes. There are also several indoor scenes stamps from comfy cozy to formal. You can also choose if it is daylight or nighttime in the scene you create. Many possibilities. So, this week we are all creating a scene! We would love to see what you create!

Let's take a look a what I created for you with the Scene It challenge this week. I decided to create a vintage feel scene. I am using A Year of Flowers Calendar Set 2 and Seasonal Wreaths. I used a scallop to create a sky background and stamped the rose clusters randomly onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock. I colored with Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Dahlia and Evergreen . I love how my scene looks like someone just tossed roses into the air. So carefree, yet very vintage in tone and feel. I finished with a layered scalloped punch boarder and a few gold pearls beside the sentiment. I would like to add that while I sponge the sky on this card, Flourishes new release this month is a cloud background. I can hardly wait to get mine! It is fabulous. Also, you can still get this cloud background with the NEW Release bundle pricing still available through Thursday.

To see what the rest of the blog design team created for you this week with the sketch, please click the blog links below to check them out.

I love the vintage roses card! I posted my little house scene card in Mr. Linky. This is my first time ever participating in a challenge - this is a lot of fun!

Wowwwwww what a beautiful vintage roses card. It is so unfortunate that I can't order the stamps in the Netherlands. They are so beautiful!!!!! In the weekend i will order somen sets and then wait;-) and that is a big problem for me;-).

Hugs and have nice day,

This was difficult for me to do and I'm not sure how I feel about my card but I did enjoy the challenge.
