Timeless Tuesday Celebration!

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges is Celebrating its First Year Challenge Anniversary! Thanks so much for all of you who have played along this past year! The Friends of Flourishes Blog Design Team have some fun challenges planned for you, and today I get to play along too!  I first started participating in the FTTC challenges way back when - just to possibly win some of the beautiful Flourishes Stamps, and look where that took me.  :) 

Today, the Friends of Flourishes Blog team are hosting six different challenges offering up 7 prizes, and one GRAND PRIZE! Check out the info below my samples today to find out how to play and what you need to do to win!

Here's my sample for Dee's Fruity Birthday Challenge (FTTC52C)....I pulled out one of my favourite fruity Flourishes sets - Cherries and Peaches for this one.

This new Nook and Pantry paper from Basic Grey is perfect for these cherries set with all the fruit on the paper, so I paired the colors and prints to give it a homey feel. The cherries are colored with copic markers (Poppy and Meadow Collections). Then I overstamped the tiny cherries on the sentiment layer.  And I also added a little zig zag stitch sewing and some pretty embossed dots on my nestie layer. 



Now...here's how we invite you to get involved. 

How to Play!  Keyword: When loading to online galleries make sure you use the correct challenge keyword for that challenge (FTTC52A, FTTC52B, FTTC52C, FTTC52D,FTTC52E, or FTTC52F) along with FTTC, Flourishes, FLLC

I just LOVE cherries and now I wish I had some to eat LOL! Great colouring of the image and I love the stitching on the panel. Wonderful positioning of the panels too - I have such a hard time with off centered / angled image (must be my anal retentive side LOL!)

Gorgeous card, Christine! Very cheery and fun (or should I say very "cherry"?). Would love to play these challenge but can't imagine finding the time. I'll enjoy looking, though!
