The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge is celebrating challenge #100 this week with a special blog hop! The challenge this week is to just use your favorite things! I figured that would be an extreme pleasure, so I created this card for the challenge. If you'd like more details, please visit the 100th Challenge Blog Hop post!
My favorites on this card include the Apple of My Eye stamp set, (well, I love ALL Flourishes stamp sets, but those nice big apples in this set make it one of my most-favorites!) some zig-zag and straight stitching done on the machine with my favorite Jody-thread, papers from October Afternoon, Nestabilities and Die-Namics for die-cutting, a little bit of dry embossing (not showing up very well in the red strip near the bottom), and Divine Twine tied through a button embellishment. AND it includes one of my new favorite things ever... this vintage Bingo card! I think these things are just so cool! I found some for sale on Etsy and my BFF Barbara Anders and I split the cost of them so we'd each have some. I can't wait to see what she does with them! A few other favorites here are the Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card background stamp I used at the very bottom (see that old-fashioned hand-written music on the green cardstock?), sponging done with Ranger distress inks, and the square shape.... I LOVE making square cards!
Many, many thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate the visits and comments so much!
