FTTC61 -- Bought It, Use It!!


Happy Tuesday everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC61) ! This week Barbara Anders is our host! Barbara is challenging us to use the stuff we bought. A "bought it use it" challenge so to speak. Now, if you purchased some pretty embellishments and put them away for a very special card, or you got some fancy smancy tool/punch that you just had to have, or better yet, you bought a gorgeous pack of designer papers and you have yet to use a piece, this is YOUR challenge! Tear off those wrappers girls, if we bought it we are using it this week! You have our permission! We would love to see what you create with the stuff you bought!

I need to do this challenge personally more often, lol. Those embellishments and designer papers on the shelves are very pretty just looking at but I know they are much prettier if I use ;p My card was created with those items I had to have but I needed to use :)
The image from DIY Topiaries was stamped on the classic ivory mat that was cut using Big Scalloped Oval Nestabilities. Then I colored it with Copic markers. The flower part was layered with dimensional adhesives. The greeting was stamped using Taglines set. For the rest of the card, I used the designer papers are from Basic Gray Origins, scalloped edge ribbon, pearls, and and mini tea roses from Prima.

This card is also entered Mojo Monday Sketch challenge 133 (MOJO133) and the color combo is from Color Throwdown challenge 86 (CTD86)....I was too late to enter but the challenge was hosted by Barbara --Awesome color combo, Barbara!


Now, check out what the rest of FOF have created for the challenge!!
