Timeless Tuesday #115


It's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge, and this week Silke is our hostess. She's given us a very interesting sketch to use and it'll really get you outside your box, so give it a try! Stop at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details!

I pulled out the new Orchids stamp set for my card, and paired it with some new Sparkling Spring papers from Prima. I added a seam binding bow, and some KaiserCraft pearls for embellishment.


Here's a close-up of the sparkle I added to the orchids with some Perfect Pearls misted on.


Here's how I made the back of my card. I like doing this so that I don't have to actually fold the scallops at the top of the card.


See what the other Flourishes Bloggers have created today for more inspiration!
