Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday & 2Sketches4You

Hello.  I finally got some time yesterday to make a couple cards.  I ordered some new stamps from a company called Flourishes.  They have the prettiest stamps for coloring with your Copics.  I ordered them on Saturday and they arrived on Wednesday.  Now that is service I tell ya.  A lot of their images have a botanical feel to them.  Also, they are priced very reasonably.  I was pleased with the quality as well.  I guess I know who I will be ordering my stamps from in the future.
I made this card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge and you had to use the theme fall and the colors orange,green and brown.  I used the sketch at 2Sketches4You.  

                         
This was the first time I ever had to mask and image.  The stamp is actually a Violet but scince I had to use orange, I made them into Pansies.  Everyone in the neighborhood is putting Pansies out right now.  I guess they last most of the winter here.  I added a couple of fall leaves to the bow.

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/Rustic Cream, Spring Moss
DP: PTI/Bitty Dot Basics 2009, DCVW
Stamps: Flourishes/
Ink:Memento/Black
Ribbon: American Crafts
Leaves: Reccollections
Boadrder Punch: Fiskars/Apron Lace
Copics


Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with my card for Card Patterns.

Heather, this is just scrumptious and so beautifully colored! Looks like you jumped right in with your new goodies! The different stamped elements are fabulous. I see you did some masking and the sentiment stamped over the leaves at the bottom of the seed packet is a realistic detailed touch! Fabulous and beautifully done! Thanks so much for playing FTTC!
