Vintage for Flourishes

I made this for the vintage timeless Tuesday challenge on Flourishes.    It's a 6x6 card with some pretty metallic paper from my stash. The pretty oval is part of a Marianne die and I used a spellbinders oval for the image. The image is from Autumn blossoms      I used one of the corner stamps and the saying.  Across the bottom I used the pretty carnivale border from Cheery Lynn.  I added some gold beads and a bow to finish the card.

Just Rite Anything Goes

The challenge on Just Rite is Anything Goes. You can use your favorite stamp set and then tell them why you like this set.  I used the clear With Sympathy set and I love this set because it can be used for anything. The roses are beautiful and there are lots of sayings for get well, thinking of you, prayers etc but these roses can be used for pretty much any card.   All of the die cuts are Marianne and I added some pearls and a bow to finish the card. The roses are colored with copics, RV52, RV63 and the leaves are YG03 and YG63.  I added some gold pen around the edges.

The challenge over at Flourishes is a Fish Tail, 4 Pearls and a Circle.  I started the 5x7 card with some pretty textured paper, then cut the fish tail and ran it through the cuttlebug. The pretty die is a Marianne die and Cheery Lynn circle. I stamped the gorgeous Winter blossoms and colored it with copics and Spica pens. I added some dimension with liquid pearls on the pussy willows and glitter.  I added peel off corners and colored in some of the area with a Spica pen.  I finished the card with pearls on the corner of the Marianne die.

Pick a card,

This week Flourishes challenge is to pick a card from their DT's and make something similar.  I chose a pretty flower card with a neutral and raspberry and lavender colors, those also went with the challenge on Color Challenge.   The challenge on Cheery Lynn this week is friendship and this sending happy thoughts stamp from Flourishes fit well. The pretty flower stamp is from the same set, winter blossoms.
I used a Spellbinders scalloped circle to stamp the image on and colored it with copics.  I added some gold stickles in the centers.  The saying is stamped on a Spellbinders fancy tag two with lavender ink and I added some prima flowers. The flourish and leaf flourishes and butterfly are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
