Timeless Tuesday 163

Hello!  Are you having a great week so far?  I am!  It has been like summer here the last couple days.  Tomorrow we have rain coming and cooler temps.  Which is fine by me.  I do not want to skip Spring.  It is my favorite season next to fall.  I have made a card for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  Beate is our challenge hostess and she has asked that we make a Birthday card.


I used the pretty A Year in Flowers 2 set along with the sentiment from Mix-N-Mugs.  I am not sure if you know this, but all the small sentiments in this set fit perfectly inside the Flourishes Tailor Made Classic Tags dies.  It contains all your basic perfect tags sentiments.  I also used Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  I was amazed at the quality of this paper.  I have to say I am SUPER picky when it comes to cardstock and this one comes in at the top for me at 110 lb weight.  I did not have the exact color ink for sponging, so I combined a light layer of New Sprout then Summer Sky to make the perfect colored ink to match my paper.

I used The Sunflower and Leaf Green Collection from Flourishes Copic Collections.


I played along with Card Patterns sketch challenge to get me started.


We have a new team member!  Amanda Havon, who has been a very loyal Challenge chaser at Flourishes is now part of the Timeless Tuesday team.  Her feminine style and attention to detail is a fabulous addition to the team.  Make sure you stop by and welcome her.
