Timeless Tuesday #151


It's another Timeless Tuesday challenge with Flourishes, and this week I'm the hostess with a simple inspiration challenge!  Check out the photo below and be inspired... maybe by the patterns, the colors, the ribbons, the tree itself... whatever floats your boat!  Have fun with this!


For my card, I was inspired by the topiary, the colors and the patterns so I pulled out my DIY Topiary stamp set to get started.  Since the lovey-dovey Valentine season is almost upon us, I decided to make a Valentine-themed card, using a sentiment from the Tag Lines stamp set.  My image was cut out with a Labels 8 Nestabilities die, and I colored my Topiary with Copics from the PoppyDogwoodEvergreenFlesh Tones 2 and Warm Neutrals Copic collections on Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  The designer papers I used here are from Doodlebug Designs, and I added some red curly grid ribbon to my button/tag combo to mimic the curly-Qs in the inspiration photo.


Be sure and see how the other Timeless Tuesday designers were inspired by the photo today...

Tammy, thanks for your really sweet comment on *my* topiary card for this challenge! I must say I was also inspired by your card; it made me think to bring out my rose topiary stamp. I like your card a lot!

Looks like I'm further behind on my commenting than you are! :) I love the intense colors on your card. It's amazing that we chose the same topiary and the same container, too. Great minds, you know.... ~Hugs, Cheryl
