Timeless Tuesday #118

It's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge, and this week it is my turn to host the challenge. I have found myself liking Inspiration Challenges more and more lately, and when I saw this beautiful paper-crafted topiary tree (photo below) a few weeks ago, I knew it would be fun to use for a challenge! This was created by the talented Julia Sandvoss at The Craft Mom, and I so appreciate her allowing us to use her pretty tree as our inspiration today! You could choose to be inspired by the colors, the flowers, the butterflies, the actual tree... just about anything! Let your creativity loose and play along! All the challenge details are on the Flourishes blog!


For my card, I was inspired by the many beautiful flowers, the colors and the butterflies and used my new Country Charm Labels stamp set! These new stamps are so fabulous because they coordinate perfectly with the new Grommet Tags dies from Spellbinders! My papers are all from the new Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" collection, and I added some bling with a Zva rhinestone flourish. My card layout is loosely based on the Mojo Monday sketch #191 for this week.

See what the other Flourishes bloggers have created today for more inspiration...


Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy stamping!
