Timeless Tuesday #158

Pin It

Hello Flourishes Fans, and welcome to another Timeless Tuesday challenge!  I'm the hostess this week, and have a fun challenge idea.  My challenge this week is Country Comfort.... create something inspired by country living, whether it's a farm-theme, gardening, patterns (calico, gingham, plaid), quilts, wildflowers... anything inspired by the country.

For my card I chose to use the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set because no flower says "country" more to me than sunflowers.  I paired my image with some rustic October Afternoon papers, gingham ribbon and May Arts Ivory Crocheted Trim.  My wreath was colored with Copics from the Sunflower, Poppy, Evergreen and Flesh Tones 2 collections on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.  My wreath was cut out with a Nestabilities Standard Circle die, and matted on a Big Scalloped Circle die.


I hope you'll decide to play along with us this week!  Stop by the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details!  And visit the other Timeless Tuesday designers for more inspiration...

Tera Fujan, February Guest Designer

Thanks so much for visiting today!
