Timeless Tuesday #111



We're back for another Timeless Tuesday challenge again this week! We're up to week #111 and Betty is our hostess. Her challenge to you is to use the stamps in your set that often get neglected. So often we may buy a set of stamps just because we really like only 2-3 images within the set, so for today she's challenging you to use the other stamps! Please stop by the Flourishes blog to see her beautiful sample and check out the challenge details! We hope you'll play along!
For my card, I chose to use the new Spring is Sprung set. I fell instantly in love with the sweet bunny rabbits in this stamp set, and really doubt that I would ever use the bird image, so that's what I went with for my card today. The bird was stamped very lightly with Versafine Smoky Gray ink, then the sentiment was stamped in Melon Mambo SU! ink and embossed.

For more inspiration, see what the other Flourishes bloggers have created for today's challenge...
