FTTC123 - For You

A short post with my card for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge.  The fabulously Betty is the host this week and she has challenged us to use paper bags!!  Yes, you read that right paper bags.  Sounds kinda funny, but it was actually easy to incorporate some into my project.



Earlier this month during the Flourishes' new stamp release festivities design team member Cindy Lawrence made the most amazing card using Spellbinders Labels 21 dies.  After I picked my jaw up off the floor I decided that I would give it a try and make a card using my Labels 21 dies.  My card isn't nearly as gorgeous as her card, but I really like how it turned out.   I used the Flourishes set Wreaths of All Seasons and made a sort of patriotic card.  And where is the paper bag you might be asking?   The scalloped diecut circle you see framing the diecut image is from a brown paper bag!

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! Crumb Cake, Night of Navy & Cherry Cobbler; PTI white; Stamps:  Flourishes Wreaths of all Seasons; Inks:  Crumb Cake; Night of Navy; Copic Markers; Bakers Twine - The Twinery; Spellbinders Labels 21, Scalloped and Plain Circle dies

Fantastic card, Rosemary! I love that wreath--may have to look into getting some Flourish stamps now! You're a bad influence on me--OK, I consider it a good influence, but hubby may disagree--LOL!
