A Flourishes Favorite




Here is my contribution for the Flourishes 100th Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  This challenge is being celebrated with a customer blog hop!  How fun!  The challenge this week is all about favorites.  This card encompasses quite a few of my favorites. 

I'll start with my favorite Flourishes set for images.  It was my first set and remains my favorite, Coffee with Friends.  I added a sentiment from my favorite Flourishes sentiment sets, Tag Lines.  Coffee With Friends is a natural choice because one of my favorite techniques is paper piecing.   And if you believe that Clean and Simple is a technique, CAS is another one of my favorites.  I went with minimal embellishments as part of my CAS design.  I used 4 little rhinestones (another favorite) on my card and popped up the panel off the card base.

Purple is one my favorite colors.  I opted for some purple in my designer paper, called Wisteria.  Wisteria is made by Basic Grey, a favorite company of mine!

Thanks for stopping by!

Details - Stamps: Coffee With Friends, Tag Lines; Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, BG Wisteria; Ink: Basic Black; Accessories: Michael's self adhesive rhinestones, stampin' dimensionals, paper snips; Techniques: CAS, paper piecing.
