Timeless Tuesday #117 - Anything Goes!


Betty Wright is our hostess this week for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, and she's making it incredibly easy on us this week... it's a free for all! Create anything you want to play along! If you have Flourishes stamps, by all means please use them! If you don't, play along anyway and maybe you'll be the winner next week of a little bit of moolah to spend in theFlourishes store! Remember to observe the challenge rules posted on theFlourishes blog! I think a LOT of people aren't paying attention to the rules and are missing out on their chances to win!

Since Betty gave us free reign this week with her challenge, I decided to pull out a stamp set I haven't had a chance to use yet, Life, Love and Lemons. I paired this lemon tree image with some new October Afternoon 5 & Dime paper, and used the sketch challenge from last week on Splitcoaststampers. I embellished with some crinkled seam binding, and some KaiserCraft pearls. My image is colored with Copics on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.


Stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details, and hop around and see what the other Flourishes blog team members created for today...

Brenda O'Rear/Benzi, May Guest Designer

This is gorgeous! I've yet to use my lemon set but I think that is partly because of our cold "hot chocolate" weather lately I'm not thinking "lemonade". You created such sunshine with this lovely card.
