Timeless Tuesday #161

It's Tuesday once again, so that means the girls at Flourishes have another Timeless Tuesday challenge for you to try!  Silke has given us this sketch for the challenge, and I hope you'll enjoy giving this "long card" a try!

I was really intimidated at first, but got my wheels turning and LOVE the design I came up with using this sketch.  I switched up the embellishments a little, moving it to the left side to accommodate my image.  A few of my Cherry Blossoms have been cut out and mounted with foam for added dimension.  My blossoms were colored on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Copic markers, and I embellished with some White Lace Trim, and May Arts plaid ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tags stamp set, and cut out with the Tailor-Made Classic Tags die.


I added a smaller branch of cherry blossoms on the inside of the card, along with a sentiment from the stamp set.

Please visit the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details, and the Timeless Tuesday team members for more inspiration...

Tammy, your card is gorgeous! I love it! The cherry blossoms are in bloom -- expected to peak this weekend -- just in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival! It's the 100th anniversary of the Japanese gift of the cherry blossom trees so they're already giving traffic cautions! I love your card! Perfect for the season!
