Timeless Tuesday #113 and a JUG-Head Birthday Blog Hop


It's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge with the Flourishes Blog Team, and this week Dee is our hostess. Since Spring appears to finally be showing up around the country, Dee is challenging everyone to show off their best floral creations. Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details and to link up your own creation!

My card today is showing off the beautiful flowers from the recently released Lenten Rose stamp set, and it's also a birthday card for the fabulous Elise Durenberger! I got to know Elise when she was a Guestie on the Color Throwdown team last year and she is an absolute joy to know! Her enthusiasm and her smile are so infectious! Today is her birthday, and the girls on the JUGS Challenge team have organized a blog hop to help her celebrate and I was asked to join in. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Elise! You are so super-sweet, and I hope your birthday is fabulous!

I incorporated some Basic Grey "Lemonade" papers in my design, some hand-dyed seam binding tied off with a vintage button, some butterfly punches, stitching and KaiserCraft pearls. The birthday sentiment is from Tag Lines.

First, please stop and see the other Flourishes Bloggers cards for plenty of floral inspiration...

Pattie Goldman, April Guest Designer

Then, check out all the cards in Elise's Birthday Blog Hop and finish up at Elise's blog and be sure to wish her a very Happy Birthday... (You can join in and make a card for Elise too, then link it up to get added to the list!)



And finally, thank you so much for stopping by today! I greatly appreciate your visits!
